Indeez launches COVID-19 financial protection product for independent workers
- Indeez brings together the first European coalition of digital platforms, to provide financial protection to independent workers for some of the impacts of a COVID-19 infection with the #CoviSure product, in partnership with the insurance company Chubb.
- PeoplePerHour and Heetch amongst those offering #CoviSure to their communities
The lack of availability of financial protection for independent workers needs to be urgently addressed by private and state actors collectively. At Indeez, we believe that with #CoviSure, we are building a pan-European, cross industry coalition, that will stand to empower independent workers in their everyday lives. What we do in Europe, we hope will be a model for other regions of the world
Founder & CEO, Indeez
We strongly believe that no one should lose benefits for the sake of flexibility, and we take our responsibility to support the freelance economy very seriously. Partnering with Indeez to offer Covid cover that provides financial protection against the effects of the pandemic, is another great step towards our mission. Indeez have put together a highly accessible package that we believe will be crucial to our freelance community, giving them the confidence they are covered for whatever eventualities.
