Voluntary Life Insurance

What is Life Insurance?

Life Insurance helps protect the financial futures of those who depend on an employee’s paycheck. Group Life insurance helps pay a beneficiary (a person an employee chooses) a lump sum amount upon an employee’s death.
Life insurance amounts can range from a flat dollar amount to multiples of an employee’s salary (e.g., 3x the salary). The Hartford's Life insurance also provides other services to an employee and their family, like will preparation, funeral planning, travel assistance and more.

Why Employees Need Life Insurance

  • 50% of US Households feel that they need more life insurance and that they would feel the financial impact of losing their primary wage earner in a year or less.2
  • Life insurance policies can help heirs take care of burial and other funeral expenses, replace lost income, and pay off the mortgage.
  • Nearly 7 in 10 U.S. workers – across all generations – believe having a life insurance benefit available to them at work is important and the importance workers place on life benefits has increased by more than 20% over the past five years.2
