Our Story

1099Policy was born out of an industry veteran’s experience advising temp staffing agencies and freelance management platforms on how to best meet the insurance coverage needs of both the contracting entity and independent contractors. It became clear over time that the rapid increase of independent contractors needing insurance required a scalable solution that could operate at the intersection of where 1099 talent and the contracting entity meets.

Why We're Different

Business insurance is complex and often overwhelming. More so when it stands between an independent contractor and prospective employment. 1099Policy is built to deal with the demands of the contracting entity compliance departments and the needs of the independent contractor. Our API for pay-as-you-go insurance products provides contractor's the coverage that the contracting entity require. We take care to abstract away the complexity of business insurance behind an easy-to-use interface specifically designed for the platforms that independent contractors use everyday to find work.
