Group Benefits Plans

Did you know that many of your employees who are not on a group benefits insurance plan may not otherwise qualify for term life insurance and medical insurance coverage on their own? This is especially true if they have a pre-existing medical condition or are older in age.

By implementing a group benefits plan you can grant your employees access to lower cost benefits coverage. We can even help you set up a healthcare spending account for your employees. Our plans are designed for medium sized businesses with 10 or more employees.

This is because Alberta benefits and insurance plans spread the risk of claims across multiple policy holders both in your workplace and outside your workplace.

Types of Group Benefits Insurance in Alberta

Employee group insurance spread the financial risk of health related expenses between all employees within the plan, (under one contract) who all pay into a general fund or pool. The terms of the contract between the employer and insurance provider determine how an employee who becomes ill or needs medical services is financially compensated. We can help you design an Edmonton group benefits plan for your workplace with different areas to be insured, including:

Group Term Life Insurance Benefits

For Albertans, a group term life insurance plan is the more popular choice between term life and permanent life insurance. With group term life insurance, Alberta policyholders pay a monthly rate for a certain level of coverage. The monthly rate expires at the end of the term. Based on your workforce we can help find you great quotes on group term life insurance.

Group Health Insurance Benefits

Group health insurance in Alberta is often the forefront item of discussion when it comes to group benefits insurance for Alberta businesses because it is the most commonly used. All of your employees anticipate needing some kind of prescription medication, dental work, or vision care in their near future. Each employee is different in their desired level of group health coverage but our benefits advisors in Edmonton can help come up with a flexible plan for your workplace.

Group Disability Insurance Benefits

Group disability coverage on the other hand is something every employee hopes they will not need to use. Group disability helps cover unexpected events and protect your employees from any financial hardships that may result from accidents. Talk with our Edmonton group benefits brokers to decide on the appropriate level of Alberta disability coverage needed.

If your business has 10 or more employees, our group insurance benefits advisors can show you other areas to consider that can provide customized value to your workforce. Call 780-437-5070 or email our employee benefits broker for a free consultation.

Tax Advantages of Group Benefits Insurance Plans

It often pays to offer your employees benefit incentives rather than monetary incentives! Also, some Alberta business owners and employers neglect to evaluate the full tax benefits of an employee group benefits plan, which can earn you significant savings.

Our plan providers can perform cost analysis from an accounting perspective to determine the ideal ratio of wage to benefits in your labour expenses.

As an Alberta based business, your contribution to your Alberta employee group critical illness insurance is tax deductible but it is not a taxable benefit for your employees in Alberta.

The benefit to employees is that funds paid out from a group critical illness insurance policy are non-taxable and the funds are paid out immediately to assist the policy holders with funeral expenses and other incurred debt.
