Advisors often have to deliver bad news about the rising costs of their clients’ medical plans. With these growing cost pressures, many small employers feel that they simply can’t afford to offer ancillary benefits. And that puts them at a hiring disadvantage in a tight labor market. You can bring some good news to your clients with voluntary benefit options at little or no cost to employers. Voluntary benefits are becoming increasingly popular because they offer an affordable way for employers to enhance their portfolio of offerings.
A voluntary benefit plan is also good news for employees because it allows them to gain valuable coverage through group purchasing power. Benefits like dental and vision coverage can also soften the blow of higher out-of-pocket medical costs. A BenefitsPro survey reveals that employees appreciate voluntary benefits, and they’re willing to pay for them:
• 62% of employees under 50 wouldn’t consider working for a company that didn’t offer voluntary benefits.
• 83% of workers with healthcare coverage say they would enroll in a voluntary benefits program without expecting their employer to pay for it.
