Being a Freelancer

Working at home is not really bad at all. Being a freelancer is probably one of the best jobs I’ve ever had. However, being a self employed has many disadvantages too especially when it comes to benefits.

Just like what i said, i am a freelancer so it means i have no direct contract to my employers and my benefits are so limited. Actually, it seems that i have no benefits at all. What i am missing here are those long term benefits, those necessary benefits that all employers should have like the Social Security System contribution, Housing, and even the health or life insurance. My mom said that i better start self contributing which is obviously the only way left to me to get those benefits and use them in the near future. However, i just have to bear with some sacrifices because i have no choice but to go directly to their company and pay the contribution myself.

And when it comes to the insurance thing, i guess i have nothing to worry because i can get one online via Good thing transaction like this can be done over the web and i do not have to visit or go directly to the insurance company. Whew! at least, i have nothing to worry about the benefits now even though i am just a freelancer right?

    Benefits? How about unlimited leave… without any need to fill up an 'Application For Leave' form? 😀
