Client Testimonials

How do I add or delete a dependent?

Contact your Plan Administrator to complete an Employee Change request. Change must be completed within 31 days of the change to avoid late applicant status.

If I leave my job can I make arrangements to continue my benefit coverage on an individual basis?

Yes, Life Insurance and Health and Dental benefits are convertible to individual plans. Life insurance has to be converted within 31 days and Health and Dental within 60 days of termination of your group benefits. On some plans Disability and Critical Illness may be convertible please check your benefits booklet.

Do I need to report my disability benefits on my tax return?

If your employer paid any portion of your disability premium, any benefits received must be reported on your personal tax return. When a benefit plan includes disability coverage, it could be beneficial for the employee to pay the disability premium so the employee doesn’t pay income tax on any benefits they receive.
