DoorDash has introduced a portable benefits savings program for employees, beginning with a six-month pilot in Pennsylvania. This program will cover expenses such as retirement savings, health, dental, and vision insurance, as well as paid time off. The pilot will take place from April through September 2024.

According to a statement from DoorDash, the company recognizes that more individuals are seeking ways to supplement their traditional jobs and meet their financial goals. DoorDash values the ability for employees to balance their work responsibilities with other opportunities. The average Dasher spends less than four hours per week on deliveries and many already have other sources of income or benefits.

The portable benefits platform Stride will be used for this program, allowing participants to allocate their savings to eligible categories and access information about available benefits. Employees in Pennsylvania who earn at least $1,000 in the second quarter of the year (excluding tips) on the DoorDash platform are 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. They will also have the option to contribute personal funds, and all funds in the account will remain portable with the employees. This initiative aims to provide DoorDash employees with valuable benefits and help them achieve their financial goals.
