How to Find the Right Voluntary Benefits Plan

By Trustmarksolutions.com

Life. It can be unpredictable at best which is probably why the insurance industry has grown to the size that it has. With that growth, insurance companies have come and gone, but most of us are familiar with the big names in the voluntary benefits world. When shopping around, it's hard to tell who offers the best product for the best price. So, how do you know you're getting the coverage that you, your family, or your employees need and deserve? We're going to tell you how to find the right insurance coverage today.

Some Things to Consider When Signing up for a Voluntary Benefits Plan

Perhaps one of the most important things to consider when searching for the right benefits plan is whether or not the prospective company takes a genuine interest in your needs, so they can find the right solution for you. Few companies take the time to listen to their clients and if you have the opportunity to work with a voluntary benefits provider that has designed coverage based on customer feedback; then that's a company you should seriously consider working with.

Another thing to consider, is choosing a company that is willing to work with you and/or your employees. Most insurance companies take a "one-size-fits-all" approach when offering plans and packages to their clients. When considering a voluntary benefits provider, you want to look for flexibility and a company that is client-focused.

Also, if they assign someone to work one-on-one with each of your employees during the enrolment process by educating them on the different coverage options. This will give your employees a better understanding about their coverage, and that's so important since most people often don't understand what their coverage can actually do for them.

What Type of Coverage to Get

The great thing about working with a voluntary benefits provider that listens to the needs of its customers is, you won't end up buying coverage that doesn't apply to you, your family, or coverage that doesn't set your company apart from the rest. Rather than offering pre-designed packages, it's nice to know that someone is willing to offer you coverage based on your needs.

The type of coverage your chosen provider should be willing to offer:

  • Life Insurance: Covers your family should anything happen to you.
  • Accident Insurance: In the event of an accident, this can cover you where your other health insurance may not be able to cover you.
  • Critical Illness Insurance: If you're diagnosed with an illness, this will help take care of your family and your home.
  • Disability Insurance: Covers unexpected illnesses and becomes your paycheck when you are unable to work.
  • Long-term care Insurance Options: ***** benefits, living benefits, terminal illness benefits with options for what you'd like covered by this benefit
  • Life Health & Wealth: Coaching and planning for personal health and finances.

Where to Find the Right Voluntary Benefits Provider

Try doing a search under words like, "voluntary insurance, employee voluntary benefits, voluntary benefits for employees, and disability insurance". You'll most likely find a host of companies under these words, but remember to take the time to do your research, so you can offer a competitive and comprehensive benefits package to your employees.
