You made it! The jump, I mean. You're officially your own boss, now what? Unless your name is Clark Kent, you will need independent health insurance. Do you happen to have a rich aunt who has left you millions? If not, you will also need to start saving for retirement. Do you know how much to set aside for taxes while self-employed? If you said no to most of these questions, congratulations, you are in the same boat as most people. That's where Catch comes in—self-employed benefits.
Catch makes it possible for freelancers to focus on the things that matter, like your work and, yes, your sanity. We do the heavy lifting, so you don't have to. Need access to health insurance?

Catch makes your personal payroll journey easier, giving you all the tools necessary to navigate in a world where you're responsible for your own self-employed benefits. The first few steps are always the hardest, which is why we are beside you every step of the way. Catch gives you the peace of mind to explore your talents without the fear of leaving a “traditional” job and losing the benefits a W2 employee is offered. The setup is straightforward—download Catch in the Google Play or App store. Create a tax goal, link your bank, and choose your income sources, then you're all set.
Did I mention that Catch takes the guesswork out of setting money aside for taxes? As you earn income from your freelance work, you can set aside money to fund your Catch account, and our system will take the appropriate amount out of each deposit for taxes. How's that for being self-sufficient!
The next order of business is setting up your retirement. Gone are the days when you needed a "regular job" to access a Traditional IRA or a Roth IRA. In as little as 5 minutes, you can go through setting up a retirement that matches your financial goals and your needs. Also, you don't have to worry if your financial needs change, as Catch allows you to make adjustments to your retirement contributions, making it easier to kick your feet up after you have finished conquering the world.
Lastly, independent health insurance — that thing you need if you ever catch a common cold and now find yourself owing the hospital thousands of dollars for a ten-minute check-up? Nobody wakes up and says, I want to get sick or injured today. Independent health insurance protects you from the unexpected. Outside events might not be in your control, but ensuring that you and your loved ones are covered is in your control. For that reason, Catch has simplified the health insurance application and can get you all the tax credits you’re qualified for. Also, Catch recommends the best plans for your needs, and we offer ACA-compliant plans at the lowest available price.
Tax withholding, retirement, and health insurance have long been the pillars of stability, but they don't have to be the barrier that stops you from pursuing your goals. By using Catch, you will have access to all the benefits of having traditional employment without the headache of trying to figure everything out on your own. That is the beauty of using Catch; you don't have to become an expert to start using this product; you don't have to have it all figured out; you just have to act. All the tools you need for self-employed benefits are available to you, so what are you waiting for? Your personal payroll journey awaits.
