Consider this:

80%

of workers would keep a job with benefits rather than take one that offered more pay and no benefits.1

66%

of workers feel that benefits and perks are the largest determining factor in considering a job offer.2

6 out of 10

employers offer at least one voluntary benefit to their employees; the number increases for large employers with over 80% offering a voluntary product.3

23%

of employees who purchased voluntary benefits did so because they needed help with out-of-pocket medical costs.4

Coverage to meet each employee's needs

Give employees the freedom to choose the coverage that’s right for them.

Affordable

Affordable

Voluntary benefits can be offered at no additional cost to you. Employees may purchase coverage at affordable rates.

Easy

Convenient

Payments are automatically deducted from an employee's paycheck. Benefits are paid directly to them, regardless of other coverage.

Out of Pocket

Protection

Voluntary employee benefits can help cover out-of-pocket costs related to a covered illness or injury.

Essential protection for your workforce.

As employees face the responsibility of funding their futures, help protect them from the financial impact of an injury, critical illness, hospitalization or loss of income.

Accident Expense

Pays benefits for injuries resulting from a covered accident.

How it works

Big or small, accidents happen and the costs related to recovery can add up. Accident Expense insurance provides specific cash benefits and may be used for expenses like copays and deductibles.

Consider this

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 2018.5

Advantages

  • Helps cover out-of-pocket expenses
  • Benefit paid directly to the employee
  • Flexible plans to complement a variety of employer medical plans.
  • Guaranteed issue – no medical exams or tests to take
  • No deductibles, copays or coinsurance
  • HSA friendly

Hospital Indemnity

Pays benefits starting at admission for each day of hospital confinement.

How it works

Even with major medical insurance, a hospital stay can lead to financial burdens. Assurity pays benefits starting at admission and for each day of hospital confinement. Benefits can be used to help pay for out-of-pocket costs related to these unexpected expenses.

Watch Video

Consider this

The average hospital stay is over 4.5 days and the average hospital bill is $11,259.7

Advantages

  • Helps cover out-of-pocket expenses
  • Benefit paid directly to the employee
  • Flexible plans to complement a variety of employer medical plans.
  • Guaranteed issue – no medical exams or tests to qualify
  • No deductibles, copays or coinsurance

Disability Income

Provides short-term coverage to replace lost income due to an accident or sickness (sickness only policies available).

How it works

If an accident or sickness make work impossible, chances are the paychecks stop too. Disability insurance can help replace income (usually up to 60% of salary) and provide cash benefits for expenses that may not be fully covered by major medical insurance.

Watch Video

Consider this

Only 29% of Americans have enough emergency savings to cover at least six months of expenses.8

Advantages

  • Helps replace income and maintain financial stability
  • Keeps focus on recovery, not finances
  • Benefits are paid directly to the employee

Life Insurance

Allows an employee's loved ones to remain financially secure after they die.

How it works

The family can use the money from life insurance to pay for childcare, college tuition, rent or mortgage, bridge retirement income gaps, and cover any final expenses.

Consider this

More than one-third (35 percent) of all households would feel adverse financial impacts within one month if a primary wage earner died.9

Advantages

  • Group Whole Life coverage available
  • Premiums won’t increase, even if health changes
  • The policy’s death benefit will never decrease
