4 voluntary benefits you should consider ... and why
When you hear the words health insurance, medical coverage may be the first thing that comes to mind. However, voluntary health benefits can be a huge win for both you and your employees.
1. Dental coverage
Regular dental check-ups can help catch problems before they get serious. And preventive care also contributes to overall wellness.
2. Vision coverage
High blood pressure, glaucoma and diabetes are often caught early through routine eye exams. By providing vision benefits, you may help lower your company’s long-term medical costs.
3. Short/long-term disability
The risk of becoming disabled is greater than you might think. Disability coverage pays a portion of an employee’s salary if they can no longer perform their job.
4. Group life insurance
In the event of a tragedy, group life insurance provides financial protection so employees and their families can focus on what matters.
