    Since 2014, we've helped over 3 million people save over $3 billion on everything from their health insurance to their taxes. Our headquarters are in San Francisco, California and we have teammates all across the United States.

    Stride was founded on the principle that independent workers deserve the same financial security as full-time employees. That's not just about your income—it's also about having the right benefits that cover your health needs, about managing and minimizing your taxes, and about saving money on everything from auto repairs to education.

    Since day one, we've been focused on helping rideshare & delivery drivers, freelancers, real estate agents, hair stylists, athletes, caregivers, pet sitters, creators, independent contractors, and part-time employees get their own "portable benefits," which is just a fancy way of saying benefits that belong to you and that you get to keep, regardless of what type of work you're doing or where you're doing it.

    This includes affordable health, dental, vision & life insurance, free tools to help you track your mileage & expenses and estimate your taxes, and special deals & discounts on everyday expenses.
