"Freelancer" doesn't mean "benefits-free."
Whether you're permanently a freelancer or hoping to expand soon, quality benefits are no longer out of the question. At Dinsmore/Steele, we specialize in pairing you with the ideal Professional Employer Organization (PEO) or Association, groups that combine you with hundreds of other small businesses and freelancers to leverage huge savings on benefits and even HR infrastructure when you might need it. And with us, you'll enjoy even better rates that we've negotiated from our partner organizations.
What's the difference between Associations and PEOs?
Associations offer the same savings on benefits packages for yourself, but let you save a little money HR doesn't seem like something you'll need. They offer access to national networks with strong health and dental — plus optional secondary benefits like legal services and identity theft protection for employee.
For freelancers, PEOs become a sort of employer — but you're still the boss. It just means that they combine your needs with those of other small businesses to get large-company benefits on national networks for discounted rates. But they'll also do your payroll, workers' comp insurance, and HR guidance at a fraction of the cost you'd pay for the same services yourself, should you ever expand.
We've vetted over 400 PEOs and can quickly select the best for your unique needs — plus negotiate lower rates than you could in person. All it takes is just 8 minutes on our request for proposal — within days we'll have plans and rates for you to review.
