Being an entrepreneur or freelancer has many benefits, such as the freedom to set your own hours and work from anywhere. However, one of the biggest challenges of it is that you don’t have the same benefits as traditional employees, such as health insurance or a retirement plan.
One of the first things you need to do to pay for your benefits is update your status to self-employed in your SSS, Philhealth, and Pag-IBIG. We’re here to guide you on how to do it.
