Deel’s tools for contractor success

Add more flexibility to your spending with Deel Card

Enjoy contractor security with Deel’s solutions

Contractors have a lot to juggle, from client satisfaction to financial administration, from compliance to ensuring cash availability even during downtimes. Doing this, however, doesn’t have to be complicated or costly, and it becomes especially easy when solutions can be easily found in one place at reduced prices.

This is why we offer Deel Perks, a series of discounts and vouchers on services for personal and professional development, travel, insurance and healthcare, mental well-being, and much more.

As a contractor, you can access exclusive perks directly from your Deel account, choosing and managing the options you prefer autonomously.

From support in redesigning a workspace with Pancake to reduced rates on Doordash passes or fitness subscriptions, to discounts on accounting and insurance services, our partnerships offer something for everyone, helping improve contractor-client relations by removing many of the issues not directly connected to work.

What you can expect from Deel Perks:

  • Over 150 partners with unique offers
  • 200,000 USD in perks
  • Perk availability covering 150 countries
  • Perks covering contractor-relevant categories that include:
    • Accounting
    • Equipment management
    • Financial Services
    • Health and Wellness
    • Insurance
    • Legal
    • Taxes

Deel’s tools for contractor success

Some workers need more than perks, however personalized. Contractors and digital nomads, for example, often have to ensure that the fundamental elements of their work, like insurance, steady access to funds, and payment security, are guaranteed to them, regardless of their job or location. Ensuring these aspects of work are covered is essential for contractors to be able to put full focus into the projects they work on.

To cater to these specific needs, Deel offers three products designed to make life easier for contractors and digital nomads. These perks can be activated by the contractor at no extra cost to the client, making them the ultimate benefits pack.

Deel Health insurance for contractors

Deel has partnered with several insurance service providers to bring contractors tailored solutions that fit their needs. For example, Deel partnered with SafetyWing to make the Remote Health plan available to contractors worldwide. This plan is designed specifically for remote communities and offers premium coverage in 185+ countries. 

Through this partnership, you can now access the following coverage all in one, easy-to-manage package with a 50% discount.

  • Hospital care: 1.5M USD for hospital charges, cancer treatment, COVID-19 treatment, pre-existing conditions, emergency dental, surgeries, emergency ambulance, and more.
  • Outpatient care: 1,000 or 5,000 USD for when medical services are needed outside of being admitted to the hospital, such as seeing a family doctor, physiotherapy, etc. This comes with a 10% co-pay. 
  • $0 deductible: Your deductible is how much you must pay out of pocket before receiving reimbursement for claims within one year. 
  • Screenings and vaccines: Covers up to 500 USD per year across two categories: screenings (routine health checks) and vaccinations. 
  • Dental: 1,000 USD in dental coverage when seeing a dentist for routine care such as checkups and fillings or more complex, non-emergency care. 
  • Vision: 500 USD for eye exams, frames, and contact lenses. 
  • Dependent coverage: Add a spouse or child for additional premiums.

Add more flexibility to your spending with Deel Card

Secure and reliable access to funds is a common challenge for international workers, especially if you're travelling or working remotely.

Depending on your location, you may encounter unexpected fees or limited access to your hard-earned cash. Or you may be working in places where your funds are not stable in local accounts, subject to high inflation, or deposited in a currency unsuitable for international use.

The Deel Card is an easy solution to these issues. 

It works just like a debit card, and it's an excellent way for you to receive your earnings in a stable currency (USD) that can be used anywhere the Visa or Mastercard networks are accepted.

Funds can be transferred to your Deel card directly from the platform, making it an easy and cost-effective solution to gain financial flexibility.

Deel Card is available in either virtual or physical format in eligible countries.

Deel Advance

Deel Advance allows you to access funds early when needed without time-consuming credit checks and hefty interest charges. This product levels the playing field for contractors worldwide, who might otherwise have trouble accessing funds when needed.

The first $50 of your Deel Advance is accessible with no fee whatsoever. Anything over this amount is paid back with a fixed fee to help cover our own costs. The minimum fee is $10, and you’ll be able to see exactly how much you’ll need to pay back before you click to request the advance. Transparency and no hidden fees are rules we live by!

Eligibility criteria are simple. You just need to make sure:

  • You’re paid via a fixed or Pay As You Go contract on Deel
  • You have an active Fixed or Pay As You Go contract for at least two months
  • Your Deel account is verified (with all required compliance documentation)
  • Your contract is not terminated or pending termination

Visit our Help Center to see the exact steps to requesting the Deel Advance.

Enjoy contractor security with Deel’s solutions

For a long time, the benefits and freedoms of contracting came with embedded insecurity and higher risk to the worker. This often translated to reduced focus on deliverables and projects, and could cause strained client relations. Not anymore. With Deel, you can develop your career on your own terms while also benefiting from a solid safety net of support tools. This is a game-changer.

Gain access to Deel perks, Deel Card, and Deel Advance to start living your best work life. Sign up for Deel today!
