Group Life Insurance
Group Life Insurance is usually offered as part of your employees benefit package and covers an entire group of people. Policies are not based on an individual's lifestyle habits or health factors but the employees are grouped together and rates are based on the risk of the group as a whole. The coverage costs are usually much less than if the employee purchased an individual policy.
The advantages to an employer offering Group Life insurance include Federal income-tax deductible premiums, fringe benefits to offer new employees and valuable life insurance protection provided at a low group rate. It also contributes to employee security, loyalty, and higher morale and reduces employee turnover, saving your company money in hiring and training costs.
