Why Provide Employee Benefits?

There are clear advantages for firms that offer employee benefits. We think a business case for doing so can be built around the following logic:

Healthy Workforce

Employee benefit packages can help ensure your workforce is fit and firing. Support can be put in place that will prevent health problems from developing. When issues do arise, additional services can work to lessen their severity. So, when they’re on the job, your team will be in a better place both physically and mentally. Plus, valuable days lost to illness should decrease as a result.

Attract Talent

Ambitious firms need skilled people to help them grow. Employers face stiffer competition for talented individuals. And employees’ expectations regarding their packages have escalated in recent years. A comprehensive employee benefits offering should help your company stand out as an aspirational employer. Packages might be considerably more affordable than you expect?

Retain Your Team

Recruitment can be hugely distracting and immensely costly. Having invested in recruiting and developing a talented employee, it’s important your business retains them. The right employee benefits package should reduce your staff turnover rate. It can also generate employee engagement and help avoid “presenteeism”.

Employee benefits don’t just provide fun “perks.” If a member of your team should pass away or become too ill to work, an employee benefits policy could provide financially for them and their loved ones. Knowing they will be looked after in difficult times will reduce underlying anxiety. It’s also a very strong way of demonstrating that you’re a caring employer.

PLAN’S GUIDE TO Group Life Cover

It’s never nice to think about what might happen when you pass away. It’s important to make sure you’ve got the right protection in place for your loved ones in your absence. In some cases, you might be eligible for a death in service benefit, which could provide valuable financial support for your family.

Some employers will offer benefits to their employees as part of a package, including a death in service benefit.

What is Group Life?

Group Life Insurance is a type of employee benefit that may be provided by your employer. If it’s something your employer offers, it means the insurance provider will pay out a pre-agreed amount of money if you were to pass away whilst in employment.

It’s important to note that your passing doesn’t have to occur when you’re physically at work, or engaged in a work activity. It simply means if you are on the company’s payroll, you will have Life Insurance in place.

How does it work?

Death in service policies are taken out and paid for by your employer. It’s not a legal requirement for employers to offer it, so not all businesses will provide cover.

Typically the pay-out will be paid into a Master Trust, and the Trustees of the Master Trust will distribute the money. It’s important to fill out an Expression of Wish Form to guide the Trustees if you have particular requirements.

The policy is usually based on a multiple of your salary, but the amount can vary.

Do you need additional cover?

While death in service benefit might seem suitable at first glance, especially as you don’t pay for the policy, it’s important to make sure it is enough. In some cases, it might be beneficial to take out your own life insurance policy as well.

The cost of living, mortgage payments and other financial commitments, such as funeral costs or childcare, can quickly add up. A death in service benefit pay-out might not be enough to protect your family from it all.

Consider your personal circumstances and how much financial help your family might need. You could take out life insurance to make up the difference, if your death in service benefit is not enough.

It’s also important to note that your death in service benefit won’t directly cover your mortgage repayments. This means you can’t assign the money to be used towards your mortgage, but your family can choose to do so themselves.

What happens if you leave the company?

If you change jobs and move to a new employer, you will lose the right to any existing death in service benefits. This is because you’re only eligible for the benefit while you’re working for that employer.

Don’t assume that your new employer will offer the same scheme, as not all companies do. Check what policies are available and what you are eligible for, as it could impact whether you need to take out any additional cover for yourself.

Why should companies offer death in service?

As a business, offering certain perks to your employees can have its benefits. By offering something like death in service, you can attract new staff to the business. This is because for many, benefits and bonuses are such an important part of the job, especially with families to look after and households to run.

You can also help to retain the right staff too, as offering this kind of benefit could be a big help for many of your employees. Death in service benefits can give your staff peace of mind, knowing that their employer cares about them and their family.
