How to Qualify
Control Income Guarantee
Jumping into freelance work was challenging as I didn't have any signed contracts before quitting my job - having certainity of income for those first months is huge.
I've been a contract worker for years but recently wanted to take a 3 month maternity leave - an income guarantee helps make sure I can make my bills while still being able to invest in my family.
I live in San Francisco and my expenses are pretty high which makes it hard to pay my bills when clients don't pay me. This helps me bridge those gaps.
It took me longer than I thought to get my freelance business really going, having a guaranteed income helped me make the right investments early on to set myself up for success later.

We assess your average income and make sure you have access to a guaranteed monthly amount to take the lumpiness out of flexible work.

Any flexible worker who wants to benefit from smoother and more consistent income. We know flexible work can be variable but your income doesn’t have to be. Income Guarantee provides an income floor to make sure you always have enough to live on. You don’t have to worry about paying anything until you’re earning enough to start paying off.
We work with you to set an income threshold that you feel comfortable with to cover your life expenses. If you earn less than that amount, we top you up so you don’t have to worry about paying your bills that month. If you earn more than that threshold, we take anywhere from 25% to 50% of the amount in excess of the threshold to repay the balance outstanding on Income Guarantee. You can always choose to pay more if you’d like, but you’re not forced to pay more than that to make sure you’re fully supported on your journey as a flexible worker.
We’re here to support our members and we do that by making sure we only make money when you make money! We charge a small fee for outstanding balances on the Income Guarantee (Anywhere from 5% to 10% of the amount outstanding)
