Group life insurance

Why should employers offer group life insurance?

Employers may offer group life insurance as a way to provide an additional benefit to their employees, as well as to attract and retain talent. Here are some potential reasons why an employer might offer group life insurance:

  1. Provides financial protection for employees’ families: Group life insurance can help provide financial protection for employees’ families in the event of an unexpected death. This can give employees peace of mind knowing that their loved ones will be taken care of.
  • Cost-effective for both employees and employer: Group life insurance policies are often less expensive than individual policies, which can make them an attractive option for employees who might not be able to afford life insurance on their own. Additionally, offering group life insurance can be cost-effective for employers, especially if they negotiate favorable rates with insurance carriers.
  • Easy to administer: Group life insurance policies are typically easy to administer, with a single policy covering all employees. This can save time and effort for both employees and employers.
  • Differentiates the employer from competitors: Offering group life insurance can help an employer differentiate itself from competitors and provide a competitive advantage in attracting and retaining talent.
  • Tax advantages: Premiums paid by the employer for group life insurance are generally tax-deductible as a business expense, and benefits paid to employees’ beneficiaries are typically not subject to income tax.

It’s important to note that group life insurance may not be appropriate for all employers or employees, and the coverage and cost will vary depending on the policy and carrier. Employers should consult with their benefits advisor or insurance carrier to determine if group life insurance is a good fit for their business.  Are you looking for a way to maximize your Group Life Insurance plan whether it is employer-paid or voluntary?  BenefitsDNA can help, contact our team today!
