The Truth About Voluntary Benefits
Marsh Consulting GroupLink to more items from this source
June 18, 2015
"Some voluntary benefits, such as disability or term life insurance, may make financial sense for employees if the potential loss is more than they can cover with their savings. The problem with many other voluntary products is that employees trade a reduction in their monthly take-home pay to protect against a very small risk of incurring a large claim. In many cases, employees are already protected against a large financial loss by their health plan, group disability plan, and other employer-provided benefits.... Voluntary benefits often provide the broker with a first-year commission exceeding 60%, compared to a 3-7% commission for health plans."
