Adding Low-cost, High-value Benefits during Pandemic
If you are an employer who has been impacted by staffing and payroll challenges during this COVID-19 Pandemic crisis, you’re not alone. A large majority of NH businesses anticipate a significant decrease in revenue resulting from state shut-down mandates, classification of essential vs. non-essential workplaces, and quarantine related staffing challenges. It’s no wonder groups are now looking at adding low-cost, high-value benefits during pandemic times.
Low-cost, High-value Benefits
Low-cost, High-value Benefits like ancillary benefits ( Life Insurance / Accidental Death & Dismemberment Insurance, Short-term / Long-term disability insurance) provide great financial security to employees concerned over unplanned medical events. An employee who is out is going to juggle not only their medical recovery needs, but also the priority of paying their bills. This raises the question for employers, how will they continue paying their share of health insurance?
When Life Insurance / Accidental Death & Dismemberment Insurance, Short-term / Long-term disability insurance are offered, it is very simple to include a voluntary critical illness or accident insurance policy which is paid for 100% by the employee. Because who isn’t worried about accidents and cancer devastating our very comfortable and familiar lifestyle? And if you offered these benefits now, just think about the relief any employee will have when a medical leave is inevitable.
Quarantine Benefit Rider
Groups with a Quarantine Benefit Rider embedded in their Short-term disability policy, brings an added financial benefit to employees, particularly right now. Should an employee be required to “quarantine” without illness, the Quarantine Benefit Rider act like a short-term disability policy and will continue 60% of their pay. While certain terms will apply, the rider protects the employee from severe financial disruption while helping the employer keep their workplace healthy and productive. I should add that this rider is no longer offered with NEW quotes from Guardian but the carrier will honor the proposals dated shortly prior to the events of COVID-19 for a brief period of time.
