Employers reveal their preferences for communicating, enrolling, and administering benefits for gig workers.


With the rise of the gig economy, some employers are showing interest in offering benefits to nontraditional workers, including part-time, seasonal, and 1099 contract workers. However, there are often unique challenges associated with administering benefits for these workers. To explore these issues, LIMRA conducted an online survey of 1,464 U.S. employers. This study looked at how employers want to approach offering benefits to part-time employees, seasonal workers, and 1099 contract workers, including:

  • The top challenges of providing benefits to nontraditional workers
  • Preferred benefit communication and enrollment methods for gig workers
  • Premium collection methods for nontraditional workers
  • Preferences for administering benefits for gig workers
