Too often when we look at life insurance options in the workplace, we look at the options as a binary decision: you can have permanent life insurance or you can have term life insurance. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Combining term and permanent life insurance can be a more effective way for most policyholders to get the protection they need.

It’s time to get proactive about our health and our insurance

By: Frank Morang, Regional Sales Director, Empire Region

Back in June, I shared a personal story about a recent health scare. I was a part of one of those dramatic statistics that we share in our industry, but don’t really think about deeply or apply to ourselves.

Useful questions to ask during voluntary enrollment

Each year, how much time would you say you spend preparing for open enrollment? If you flinched at the thought of your answer, don’t worry, this isn’t meant to be a guilt trip.

Engaging employees starts with employers

By: Mike Feeney, Regional Sales Manager, Mid-Atlantic Region 

If you want to land your dream job, you can’t just walk into the position, you’ve got to interview and work for it. Gatekeepers are everywhere, and the world of voluntary benefits is no different. When selling voluntary benefits, access to employees is critical; it’s how you provide education and enroll them in voluntary benefits. But, to get the access you need, you have to start with the gatekeeper: the employer.

Why young people need life insurance

Young people- you have a lot on your plate. You are focused on establishing a career path, you may be managing student loans, and you’re getting your life started.
