What We Do.
Workers Benefit Fund partners with local industry and sector leaders to provide benefits for millions of workers in today’s rapidly expanding gig economy. As independent contractors, gig workers lack strategic representation and traditional access to a stable benefits package. Workers Benefit Fund works closely with labor leaders to provide health and other benefits to the workers in their industry.
