Supplemental Insurance and Benefits
for Employers and Business
Fact: As a business continues to grow there are more benefits available to the employer and the employee base. These are referred to as supplemental benefits and include the following:
Disability has a huge financial impact on both an employer and employee. A well-designed benefit program will take into consideration the best method to protect the employee's income in the event of a disability.
By looking at well-designed group disability plans we are able to often get our highly compensated executives more protection at a lower cost than if we just look at one executive.
If your employees have no income protection and they become disabled, statistics show us within 30 to 60 days many will be financially destitute. Imagine the impact on your employees morale if they knew their income was protected in the event they became disabled. Let us help you evaluate your income protection strategy so that if you wake up one morning and can’t go to work you have every confidence that your family’s financial lifestyle will not be adversely impacted.
Long Term Care Insurance
As baby boomers age, it is critical that we take into consideration the potential need to provide care for the long-term.
Few people understand the financial impact of providing care for someone who has lost two or more activities of daily living or has been diagnosed with dementia or Alzheimer’s Disease.

Neither Individual nor group health insurance plans cover this expense and Social Security does not cover this beyond a certain point.
Offering this as a voluntary benefit to your employees will allow them to not only protect themselves but their loved ones.
Voluntary benefits are offered through an employer to their employee base. These benefits can include disability insurance long-term care insurance, vision insurance, and a variety of other plans that help protect the financial well-being of their family.
