Help your employees protect what matters most with voluntary benefits

Be a source of financial stability for your employees by offering voluntary benefits that help fill the gaps left by major medical insurance.

More than one-third of full-time employees have less than $1,000 saved to deal with unexpected medical expenses.1

With one-in-three people expected to be diagnosed with cancer during their lifetime, the last thing you want your employees to be worried about is how to pay for that diagnosis. Yet finances remain one of the top stressors for Americans.2

Voluntary benefits can help. No matter how rich an employer’s medical plans may be, there are often gaps which require employees to pay out-of-pocket. Voluntary benefits provide an affordable and adaptable way for employers to fill coverage gaps, support their employees’ health and financial well-being, and maintain or improve employee satisfaction with their benefits.

What’s great about voluntary benefits?

Benefits are strictly voluntary

Employees can pick and choose their options based on their (and in some cases, their family’s) actual needs.

Complement your benefits package

Voluntary benefits not only enhance the total benefits package you offer employees—but also strengthen your company’s relationship with your employees.

You choose how it’s paid

Depending on your business needs, you can choose between benefits that are 100% employer paid, 100% employee paid or a combination of both.
