Offering life insurance to your employees: A way of saying “You matter”

Life insurance is a core offering of any company benefits package. The financial confidence factor is primary: life insurance helps your employees to protect the people they care most about.

We provide term life insurance you can offer in multiple ways: employer-paid, employee-paid (voluntary), or a combination of the two (contributory). Term life insurance protects your employee as long as they’re working for you. In the event that they pass away, their dependents will receive a tax-advantaged lump sum of money to use for rent, mortgage, college tuition, and health insurance, among other things. Life insurance is an economical, convenient way for your employees to provide for their family and loved ones.

Benefits of Guardian’s employer life insurance policies

  • Flexible coverage options.  You can offer term life  insurance, permanent life insurance, or both. When you provide term life insurance for employees, they’re protected for as long as they work for your company. Permanent life insurance can complement term life by providing more lasting protection – even if they leave your company – with the potential of building cash value, money employees can use for loans or expenses throughout their lives. 

  • A cost-effective choice.  Typically, term life premiums (the payments you make to pay for the insurance) are “level,” so they stay the same for the length of the term. With permanent life insurance, premiums never change as long as the insurance is in effect.

  • Protection that’s reliable. The insured employee knows exactly how much his or her beneficiaries would receive. That payment is not tied to the rise or fall of the stock market. The amount would be received as one lump sum, generally tax-free.

Let your employees provide financial protection for their loved ones. Watch and learn more.

Other Guardian products can be added to your employees’ life insurance plans

  • Accidental death and dismemberment. Insurance that covers the loss of life as well as a breadth of accidents. This insurance can be purchased alone or added to a basic (employer-paid) or voluntary life insurance plan.

  • LifeAssistsm. This option can be added onto employees’ life insurance policies to provide critical income to those who suffer a severe disability – without reducing any benefits they’re receiving from disability insurance.

  • Will preparation services1. This option provides access to estate planning professionals, online planning documents, and an informative resource library. This resource is available at no cost if you offer a voluntary term life plan. 


At Guardian, we offer a full suite of benefits that can truly make a difference for your employees by protecting their income or savings, or even their health.  We focus on benefits, so you can focus on running your business.
