IDG New York

Benefits

The IDG is the first nonprofit labor organization to negotiate a seat at the table with a rideshare company and the first to offer crucial new protections and essential benefits while building worker power. The IDG has advocated on behalf of drivers in New York State to get them access to benefits through The Black Car Fund. As a result, the IDG and The Black Car Fund launched the Drivers Benefits program in 2018 and expanded it to include more benefits in January 2021.

*Not every driver for a Black Car service is eligible for all Drivers Benefits. Drivers who meet a minimum hourly threshold in New York State are eligible for the Drivers Health Benefit Program, paid for by The Black Car Fund. 

For 2021, an eligible driver is either:  (i) a driver who is registered with the New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission (NYC TLC) as a driver for a Black Car service and in the prior calendar year has provided service to passengers averaging at least 10 hours per week during the most recent available calendar quarter, with such hours measured from the time a passenger enters a vehicle until such passenger exits the same vehicle, or (ii) a driver not registered with the NYC TLC and who qualifies as a Transportation Network Company (TNC) or is affiliated with a dispatch base that is a member of The Black Car Fund and in the prior calendar year has received gross income of at least $4,000 during the most recent available calendar quarter from the provision of service to passengers in the State of New York. Gross revenue is to be determined based on income that will be reported on a driver’s Form 1099.

These eligibility standards may be changed by The Black Car Fund upon at least 30 days’ notice.
