DoorDash introduces new portable health benefits program in Pennsylvania

DoorDash has recently launched a six-month pilot program in Pennsylvania, which offers its employees portable benefits savings. This program covers eligible expenses such as retirement savings, health, dental, and vision insurance, as well as paid time off. The pilot is set to run from April to September 2024.

In a statement, DoorDash recognized the growing trend of individuals seeking additional income opportunities to achieve their financial goals. The company understood that many of its Dashers valued the flexibility to balance their delivery work with other responsibilities. On average, Dashers spent less than four hours per week on deliveries and had other sources of income or benefits such as retirement savings or healthcare.

The portable benefits platform Stride will be made available to participants in this pilot program. Through the platform, employees can allocate their savings to eligible categories and access information about benefit offerings. Specific details of the program include Pennsylvania DoorDash employees who earn at least $1,000 in the second quarter of the year (excluding tips) through the DoorDash platform being eligible to open a Stride Save account and receive deposits into their portable benefits savings. During the pilot, participating employees will receive deposits equal to 4% of their pre-tip earnings and have the option to contribute personal funds. The account and all funds will remain portable with the employees even after the pilot program ends.

Overall, DoorDash’s introduction of this portable benefits savings program shows its commitment towards its employees’ financial well-being and providing them with more flexibility in managing their finances while working as Dashers.
