Group Life Insurance

The Challenge

This manufacturing firm has been a client of ours for nearly two decades. The company management recognizes the importance of taking care of their employees and this was evident in how they selected their employee benefit offering. How could they offer an additional level of benefit that employees would appreciate without a large cost to employer?

The Approach

In reviewing different scenarios with management, it was decided that the company would offer new coverage. They elected to add Group Life Insurance in addition to their existing medical and disability coverage. While this new group life coverage was implemented at a minimal cost to the employer, this coverage was well received by both the young and older-aged staff.

The Recommendation

Unfortunately, in the past several years this benefit was needed for the families of two long time employees who died unexpectedly after brief illnesses. The process to claim the benefit was painless, and the extra monies at the time of death was very helpful to the employee’s family. One family elected to take an early withdrawal from the death benefit in anticipation of soon to be funeral expenses. Witnessing the impact of loss and financial burden on the family has raised the awareness and appreciation for this group life coverage.
