Alia gives house cleaners access to benefits like Paid Time Off and Insurance.

Our worker support team is available to discuss cleaners’ benefits needs at:, (315) 636-0067 (call) or (415) 991-7007 (text.)


Paid Time Off

Everyone who works deserves benefits, and that includes taking time off to recover from illness, care for a sick child or take care of family responsibilities - without losing pay.

How it works

When a cleaner needs to take time off, she requests a VISA gift card through the Alia website, which she can use at any stores that accept VISA. The VISA gift card is purchased using Alia Credits contributed by her clients.

More details can be found in our Frequently Asked Questions.
