Benefits at Work

Protect your employees.

A strong benefits program can help you attract and retain employees while helping protect their financial well-being. Adding voluntary benefit options from Assurity, allows employees to customize benefits to fit their lifestyle. Benefits are paid directly to them, regardless of other coverage.

Why worksite benefits?

Worksite benefits give you peace of mind.

Voluntary group benefits are insurance options that employees can use to supplement core benefits they may get as part of a package. Employers negotiate these benefits so their employees can be more financially secure.

Affordable

Because the risk is spread across a larger pool of people, group benefits purchased through an employer are almost always more affordable than individual options.

Convenient

Payments are deducted from employees’ paychecks.

Offset HDHP costs

Voluntary benefits can cover unexpected out-of-pocket costs related to illness or injury, helping to ease the transition to high-deductible health insurance plans.

Accident Expense

How it works

Big or small, accidents happen and the costs related to recovery can add up. Accident Expense insurance provides specific cash benefits for expenses that may not be fully covered by major medical insurance, like copays and deductibles.

The average health insurance deductible for single coverage for covered workers in plans with a deductible has increased 39% over the past five years, from $1,135 in 2013 to $1,573 in 2018.1

Critical Illness

Allows complete recovery from serious illness without the financial stresses of day-to-day living.

How it works

It’s difficult enough to get hit with a critical illness like cancer, stroke, or heart attack—let alone the bills that can stack up for survivors long after they’ve won their fight. Assurity’s Group Critical Illness Insurance is an affordable solution that pays a lump-sum benefit upon diagnosis, helping offset costs of care and providing the freedom to choose treatment options.

Consider this

Only 29% of Americans have enough emergency savings to cover at least six months of expenses, down from 31% in 2017. 7
