Help your employees be financially prepared if an accident occurs

May 2014

There’s no question there are many advantages to working at a small business.

But even with a positive working environment, employees at small businesses tend to be more financially fragile than their counterparts at medium or large companies.1

No one knows when a serious illness or injury could befall them. In fact, 70 percent of small-business workers say they would not be able to manage the large financial costs associated with a major medical emergency. Many employees at small companies say they have less than $1,000 to pay for these unexpected out-of-pocket medical expenses (59 percent).1

For this reason, everyone working for a small business should consider voluntary insurance options. Having voluntary insurance helps provide the peace of mind to focus on recovery, not medical costs. Voluntary insurance plans help employees cover bills that stack up while they’re out of work.

Help your employees protect themselves from the stress of dealing with medical bills by encouraging them to consider voluntary benefits options — Disability, Life, Accident and/or Critical Care insurance.
