Our Story

On a mission to create one-click insurance compliance

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 meet.

Why we’re different

Our focus is on eliminating complexity

“There’s so much potential for technology to streamline what contractors have to do to satisfy vendor insurance requirements. We’ll know we’ve succeeded when insurance no longer stands in the way of independent contractors taking work.”

Business insurance is complex and often overwhelming. More so when it stands between an independent contractor and a contract engagement. 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 contractors the coverage that the contracting entity requires. 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.
