A new solution to set aside money for your personal healthcare expenses
By teaming up with Starship, an app that makes saving and paying for healthcare easier than ever before, House of gigs is now offering a no-fee HSA to its gig workers. As healthcare remains the number one policy concern for flexible workers in America, and providing Starship gives our users access to the healthcare benefits best fit for the way independent contractors work.
Starship's HSA functions like a personal savings account, but with unique tax advantages for eligible healthcare costs such as vision-related expenses or health & wellness purchases. Personal contributions into an HSA are tax-free and spending on eligible medical expenses are tax-free, helping reduce healthcare costs over time. The service will be paired with: (1) ongoing financial & healthcare education materials to better understand how to utilize an HSA; (2) an app that helps track health spending & savings; and (3) customer support to maximize long-term medical expense decision making.
“HSAs are the perfect companion for freelancers and individuals and are one of the most important tools to help people save for unexpected medical expenses,” says Sean Engelking, Co-founder and CEO of Starship. “The changing nature of work means that promoting the right solution is absolutely critical to help people get ahead.”
"Being a Starship partner is a wonderful opportunity for House of gigs users. Accessing a great service will help our community members build their savings and pay for their healthcare expenses,” says Matthias Halimi, Co-founder and COO of House of gigs. “We always thrive to put the best benefits in the hands of gig economy workers"
