As of August 27, 2021, we are no longer taking applications for the COVID financial assistance policy. For additional resources and other safety information, please visit our COVID resources page.


The uncertainty caused by the coronavirus is being felt across the world. But we know it’s especially concerning for anyone who relies on our platform to make a living. That’s why we are providing financial assistance to anyone who drives or delivers with Uber and is diagnosed with COVID-19 or placed in individual quarantine by a public health authority due to their risk of spreading COVID-19. This assistance is now available worldwide.

This is a moment of great challenge, but we are here to support you.

—Andrew Macdonald, Senior Vice President, Rides and Platform
