Enhancing Your Employee Benefits Package

The Need

As a successful business owner, you have a responsibility to keep revenue high and overhead low, as well as to protect your employees. You probably also look for ways to attract and retain quality employees through a strong and competitive benefit package.

If a disability were to strike one of your employees, you both have a lot to lose:

You can lose:
  • Replacement costs
  • Revenue
  • Productivity
  • Good morale
Employees can lose:
  • Current standard of living
  • Their home
  • Peace of mind
  • Insurability
  • Retirement savings and other assets

What about group disability insurance?
While it’s a good start, group long-term disability (LTD) coverage alone may not be enough if a disability were to strike.  Benefits typically only cover up to 60% of prior earnings, and after taxes it’s even less than that.

The Solution

Complete your benefit offering with Individual Disability Income (DI) insurance.

  • If three or more of your employees purchase coverage, everyone receives a 20% Multi-Life Discount[2] based on gender neutral rates. 
  • You can offer coverage on an employer-paid (partial or full) or voluntary basis.
  • Many underwriting programs are available

The Benefits

Your benefits

  • If premiums are paid by the company they are tax deductible to the company as a fringe benefit expense 
  • A 20% Multi-Life discount is given based on unisex rates
  • Possible underwriting concessions on cases with at least 25 lives
  • Flexible billing options, such as payroll deduction or Electronic Funds Transfer
  • Worksite enrollment available
  • Seamless administrative services

Employee benefits

  • Can integrate with group LTD insurance to protect a greater portion of income
  • Less expensive premiums through the 20% Multi-Life discount
  • Portable policy and discount
  • Premiums and benefits are guaranteed through age 65
