Group Life Insurance Plans
No matter what stage of life your employees are in, they appreciate having life insurance to protect their loved ones. In fact, life insurance is an important part of many families’ long-term financial plan.
Life insurance helps your employees put the people in their lives first. If an employee passed away, the life insurance proceeds would go to the people designated as beneficiaries. Those funds can help loved ones manage financial obligations, such as: funeral expenses, mortgage or rent, college funding, daily living expenses, and more.
Plus, offering group life insurance enhances your benefits package. And great employee benefits can help you attract and keep quality employees.
Employers can offer different group life insurance options.
- Employer Paid Base Life Insurance - is most common type where the employer provides a small life insurance policy for each benefit eligible employee, most employers provide between a $10,000 and $50,000 benefit.
- Voluntary Term Life Insurance - provides employees the ability to purchase additional life insurance coverage generally up to $300,000. The employee pays the term life premiums through payroll deductions. The premiums are based on the age-group of the employee, 5-year age-bands, and increase when an employee's age enters the next age-band.
These types of policies are also easier for employees to purchase and qualify as they do not require an insurance exam, some policies provide coverage with zero health information up to specific coverage amount whereas others may require answering a few health-history questions to qualify for higher amounts of coverage.
Additional types of life insurance can also be offered including permanent life insurance options:
- Universal & Whole Life Insurance - these types of life insurance policies provide employees additional benefits beyond the death benefit including fixed policy premiums, cash accumulation, and lifetime protection.
