Why Offer a Voluntary Employee Group Life Insurance Plan
Employees want benefits through their employer and offering them a way to purchase affordable life insurance protection will boost employee satisfaction with the company that they work for. A LIMRA (Life Insurance and Market Research Association) 2013 study reported that 60% of employees would prefer to purchase their life insurance through their employer and the reason for this is because it’s an easy process, generally a better value, they trust their employer and like having premiums deducted from their paycheck.
Many Americans have no life insurance coverage for themselves or their family members. An employee group life insurance plan will allow for employees to not only purchase life insurance protection on themselves, but also their family members. Since each employee will have different life insurance needs than their fellow coworker, a voluntary plan will allow each employee to tailor a plan that best suits their coverage needs.
For individuals that are non-insurable due to medical reasons, a group life insurance plan may be their only option for life insurance coverage. This opportunity can be extremely beneficial not only to the employee, but also the employee’s family. Rates will also be affordable since they are based on the applicant’s current age and not their health.
