In 2013, almost 9 in 10 Americans viewed life insurance as a necessity however only 6 of 10 Americans said they actually owned some sort of life insurance with half of American households saying they needed more life insurance.1
Life insurance is a core component of a workplace benefit program because it provides employees with essential protection for their families. However, with medical costs continuing to rise, many employers are challenged to sustain their current levels of employer-paid coverage. Adding voluntary life insurance options is a simple way to provide employees with the added protection they want and need, without increasing benefits costs.
