DoorDash introduces new portable health benefits program in Pennsylvania

DoorDash has recently introduced a new benefits savings program for its employees, launching a six-month pilot in Pennsylvania. This program aims to help Dashers save on eligible expenses such as retirement savings, health, dental, and vision insurance, and paid time off. The pilot will run from April to September 2024.

In a statement, DoorDash acknowledged that many people who choose to work as Dashers value the flexibility to balance their delivery work with other responsibilities. On average, Dashers spend less than four hours per week on deliveries and most already have other sources of income or benefits such as retirement savings or healthcare.

The portable benefits program will be accessible through Stride’s platform, where participants can allocate their savings to eligible categories and access information about benefits offerings. Eligible Pennsylvania DoorDash employees who earn at least $1,000 in the second quarter of the year (excluding tips) through the DoorDash platform are eligible to open a Stride Save account and receive deposits into their portable benefits savings. Throughout the pilot, participating employees will receive deposits equal to 4% of their pre-tip earnings, and they will also have the option to contribute personal funds. The account and all funds will remain portable with the employees even after the pilot program ends.
