    Whether you're new to freelancing or have been doing it for years, one of the toughest parts of getting the business side of things together can be making sure you take care of yourself and put together your own benefits package. In the workshop, we'll cover:

    • How to choose the right health insurance coverage and budget for it, including premiums, deductibles, copays, and coinsurance
    • Setting up a Health Savings Account with an eligible medical insurance policy
    • Getting dental insurance (it's easier than you think!)
    • The importance of disability insurance (especially as a freelancer!), costs, and how to sign up for it
    • When you need life insurance and where to get it
    • Basics on setting up a retirement savings plan*

    This interactive, 1-hour workshop for artists and creative freelancers will be presented via Zoom. A recording will be shared for a limited time with registrants.
