Enrolling in Employee Benefits Doesn't Have to Be Clear as Mud
KANSAS CITY, Mo. --(Business Wire)--
Every year when annual enrollment comes around millions of employees
select medical plans and voluntary benefits they may or may not
understand. Some employees make clear choices, some guess and some
choose to do nothing.
Meanwhile, human resource managers scamper to provide better
communications, clearer answers and more pertinent choices. They stretch
their minds and digital file drawers to track, comply, retain,
administer, monitor and re-enroll employees. Then, the cycle starts all
Life just got better for employees and HR managers alike. Assurant
Employee Benefits, a leading provider of voluntary benefits, offers a
suite of services and tools to ease the pain of annual enrollment.
Assurant Works includes professional benefits communication and
enrollment and electronic data exchange capabilities. Together these
voluntary services make enrolling in and administering voluntary benefit
plans easier for employees and employers.
Now employees, Jack and Jill who have vastly different needs, can decide
if dental, vision or disability coverage is exactly what they need or if
cancer, gap or critical illness make more sense as their ideal voluntary
selections. Jack may choose to enroll in cancer coverage because of his
family's history while Jill enrolls in a gap insurance plan because she
only has catastrophic health coverage.
"Employers today must offer deep and wide benefits to help attract and
retain employees and balance the cost of doing so," says Kevin Seeker,
vice president of benefits comunication and administrative services.
"Assurant Works helps employers implement and manage their voluntary
benefits plans easily while helping employees truly understand and value
the benefits they are getting or helping pay for."
Assurant Works services, available separately or together, turn
communication confusion into confidence, enrollment complexity into
clarity, and administrative chaos into control. To learn more about the
entire suite, visit www.AssurantWorks.com
