"I don't visit the hospital a lot, but I needed a plan that would allow me to have an annual physical and address any random health issues that pop up from time to time. GigEasy's $35/month health plan is perfect for this."

I am aware of the lack of benefits afforded to those in the gig economy, GigEasy has designed a place where gig workers can access much-needed resources.

Although I already have health and vision coverage through my wife's job, I still needed Dental coverage. With GigEasy, I can select plans that meet my needs.

The RentProtect product gives me peace of mind in case I get injured or sick. I had a back injury and was out of work for six months five years ago. I wish I had this product back then.
