Life Insurance Benefits for Employees

A popular employee benefit for both employers and employees is life insurance. Offering it is completely optional but worth considering if you and your employees can benefit from the possible lower rates of insuring a group.

Life Insurance Benefits for Employees

A popular employee benefit for both employers and employees is life insurance. Offering it is completely optional but worth considering if you and your employees can benefit from the possible lower rates of insuring a group. Unlike individual policies, employer-sponsored plans often don’t require that applicants pass a physical exam, and group life insurance is relatively easy to convert to an individual policy when an employee leaves a company.

Group life insurance rates are based on a number of factors, including:

  1. Size of the group;
  2. Company claims history;
  3. Type of occupations associated with the group;
  4. Gender and average age of the employees;
  5. Employee salaries (if a salary-based plan is purchased).

Group life insurance premiums are considerably lower than premiums for individual life insurance policies, mainly because group life insurance is much less risky for the insurance company. Insurance companies base group life premiums on the overall risk of the company or group.

For most companies, the risk factor is low — everyone in a company is not likely to die at once. In fact, due to turnover, the chance that anyone will die while working at your company is relatively small. And since group life insurance is typically bundled with group health insurance, the insurance company’s sales and administrative costs are minimal.

If you're considering including life insurance in your employee benefit package you will have several coverage issues to consider, including whom to cover and the type and amount of coverage to offer. The next step will require finding the right fit and making sure the plan is properly administered.
