As we spend more time in front of screens, vision insurance – and the eye exams, glasses, and contact lenses it helps to cover – becomes increasingly important for workers.
Even if you have perfect eyesight, it’s important to have regular eye exams to make sure you’re still seeing clearly. Many of us eventually need vision correction, which is why we offer plans you can elect through your employer. Vision benefits are not typically covered under your medical insurance plan.

The income you earn touches numerous other lives. That’s why life insurance can be a vital offering, providing families additional financial support in case the unthinkable happens.
There are many reasons to get life insurance, but a simple rule of thumb is if you have shared debts or anyone relies on your income for their financial well-being, you should consider getting life insurance coverage. And every person’s life insurance needs are different and depend on many factors, such as how many dependents you have, how much you expect to earn, and even your gender.
- How does life insurance work?
Life insurance can help protect your loved ones financially by providing a death benefit (usually a tax-exempt payment) to your beneficiaries if you pass away.
- Why should I consider life insurance?
If you have children, a spouse, or someone who depends on you, life insurance can be a great way to help ensure they can continue to financially support themselves should the unthinkable happen to you.
Despite our best efforts, being unable to work due to illness or injury can happen. Disability insurance helps ensure you can continue to support their families at a time they need it most.
If you depend on the income you receive through work to pay your expenses, then you should probably consider disability insurance. It ensures that you can continue to receive partial income if you end up too sick or injured to work.
- How does disability insurance work?
Most disability insurance pays you a percentage of your income if you get sick with a serious illness or experience an injury that prevents you from doing your job. Some cover you in the short term immediately after an incident, while long term disability pays you if your injury lasts for an extended period.
- Why do I need disability insurance?
Accidents happen, and we can’t always anticipate if or when we’ll be diagnosed with an illness, condition, or injury, which is why it’s important to have a disability policy that will help you pay your bills in the event that you can’t collect your normal paycheck from work. You can start by determining the real cost of protecting your income.
