Life Conversations: Additional Services for Employees
There are some life conversations that no one wants to have, especially when it involves planning for financial matters, insurance needs, making end-of-life decisions or planning for the loss of a loved one.
As part of The Hartford's Group Life insurance plan, employers may have access to our Life Conversations suite of additional services, designed to help employees and their loved ones make more informed decisions. Services include:
- Funeral Planning and Concierge Services.1 A suite of online tools to guide employees through key decisions before a loss, including help comparing funeral-related costs.
