What is Alia?
Alia is an online platform created by National Domestic Workers Alliance Labs that allows you to easily provide benefits to the domestic worker in your home.
All client contributions are voluntary, and cleaners choose their own benefits including accident insurance, disability insurance, paid time off, critical illness insurance, and life insurance.
How it works
Alia lets people contribute $5 per cleaning to a pool of money that helps the domestic worker access benefits—and the more of a cleaner’s clients are contributing, the stronger their safety net becomes! And because Alia was designed the nonprofit NDWA, every dollar you contribute goes to the cleaner you employ.
- Find the worker you employ on the Alia website, or if they have not yet signed up, invite them to join.
- Set up your monthly contribution.
- Your cleaner receives all the contributions from their clients, and manages their own benefits.
What are the benefits?
- Accident Insurance
- Disability Insurance
- Paid Time Off
- Critical Illness Insurance
- Life Insurance
