AFEUSA Partners with MetLife to Provide Insurance for Gig Workers
By Claire Natale - Wednesday Sep 14, 2022
The Association for Entrepreneurship USA has partnered with MetLife, a cost-effective life insurance solution that provides group term life, accidental death and dismemberment to self-employed individuals, gig and micro-gig workers.

AFEUSA is a trade association that serves independent, small businesses, gig and micro-gig workers in most states through community involvement education, networking and resources. By partnering with MetLife, the association is working to eliminate the struggle many entrepreneurs face when attempting to source affordable insurance benefits, unlike employer sponsored plans. According to Statista, in 2019 only 24% of full-time freelancers in the U.S. had health insurance coverage through a self-purchased plan and 7% had coverage through their parents’ plan, highlighting a major need for affordable and easy to secure coverage.

“Group benefits have always been difficult for entrepreneurs to secure as they don’t work for a company, they are the company,” said Wayne Goshkarian, director of communications for AFEUSA. “Our partnership not only makes securing insurance a breeze, but applicants have access to a cost-effective group rate that they wouldn’t be able to secure on their own.”

MetLife is embedded into the AFEUSA Standard and Enhanced Membership starting at $12.95 per month. It also includes Allstate ID Protection, 1800MD Telemedicine, Vison Service Plan (VSP) plus many other member benefits related to the gig workers.
