31 Aug Need to Know: Group Benefits – August 2017

It’s time for another edition of our “Need to Know” series, where we rotate between our focus areas of Insurance and Employee Benefits. This month, our focus is on Group Benefits:

  • Keeping your organization’s health benefits plan in check entails communicating refreshers and reminders to your employees. Check out our latest blog post to learn more.
  • It is important for employees to list all eligible dependents on their benefits enrolment form, and to update this list after a lifestyle change, to avoid being a late applicant. (via Small Biz Advisor)
  • Is travel insurance included in your group benefits plan? Remind your employees to review their coverage and to keep their insurance contact handy. (via Global News)
  • Communicating the features of your benefits plan to your employees is critical, but it can be a challenge depending on the makeup of your workforce. Here are some tips on how to reach them all from Benefits Canada.
