Transamerica announced the launch of new and enhanced employer-sponsored group disability and term life insurance. The company is continually expanding products and services designed for the workplace. As a leading employee benefit and retirement provider, Transamerica developed these new offerings based on extensive feedback from employers and distribution partners. Employers have shown a renewed focus on offering employees access to comprehensive benefits packages as the country has begun to emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The timing and expansion of our employer-sponsored benefits demonstrate Transamerica’s commitment to simplify the buying experience for employers and their financial professionals, and to develop solutions that help employees protect their financial security,” said John Stanley, Senior Managing Director of Employee Benefits for Transamerica. “These group life and disability solutions enable Transamerica to provide a broader set of solutions to thousands of employers. We believe Transamerica’s expanded wealth and health solutions, bolstered by our investments in our people and innovative technologies, will support our rapid growth in employee benefits and accelerate our position as a market leader.”
Transamerica recently expanded its workplace solutions by introducing Health Savings Accounts, a Student Loan Repayment Program, and ClaimsMinder, an industry-leading customer advocacy service.
Short-Term and Long-Term Disability Insurance
An accident or illness can strike unexpectedly, leaving employees unable to work or with reduced income to support themselves and their families. Transamerica now offers employer-paid disability insurance that helps protect employees and their families when they need it most. These employer-paid policies also allow employees to increase the benefits through employee buy-up options. Transamerica already offers voluntary employee-paid disability insurance.
These new, employer-paid disability policies include:
- Return-to-work assistance;
- Rehabilitation planning, oversight, and job placement services;
- Access to physicians and nurses/medical consultants who connect with the employee’s treating physician; and
- Experienced legal help, offered at no added cost to policyholders, to help guide them through the Social Security disability application and appeal process.
Group Term Life Insurance
Transamerica’s group term life insurance is an annually renewable basic term life policy. It offers advanced flexibility that makes it easy for employers to protect the financial security of their employees’ loved ones. The policy delivers an extra layer of protection for employees’ families by supplying a death benefit based on their income. Employers can include several additional riders and services to provide their employees’ families with additional coverage. Employees can further expand coverage through buy-up options.
“Transamerica’s goal is to help people accumulate retirement savings and provide financial protection from life’s potential pitfalls. Transamerica is steadily and strategically expanding our workplace benefits,” said Mr. Stanley. “We are receiving positive feedback from employer clients and our distribution partners. We have continued to invest in an excellent team of benefits experts who are ready to help employers deliver our solutions to their workplaces across the country.”
