Customer-centric life insurance agency Haven Life has partnered with tech platform Benefitfocus in order to provide individuals with Salary Protection, a new term life insurance policy that pays an employee’s beneficiary an amount equal to the policyholder’s paycheck every month for up to 15 years after initial purchase.
Salary Protection claims to provide more robust coverage amounts than other group life insurance policies, which generally pay out only 1 or 2 times the employee’s annual salary.
“At Haven Life, we’re focused on making life insurance not only more simple, but also more convenient to purchase,” said co-founder and CEO Yaron Ben-Zvi.
“With Benefitfocus’ extensive reach, far more individuals can now purchase a life insurance product that will help provide their family with stability when they need it most. Because it mirrors an employee’s monthly paycheck and can be bought during their open enrollment, Salary Protection takes the confusion out of knowing when and how much life insurance to purchase.”
Salary Protection is also portable, so if a policyholder changes jobs, they can take their coverage with them.
The product is individually underwritten to help ensure affordability and can be purchased entirely online through Benefitfocus’ Benefit Catalog.
Once an application is submitted, if approved, coverage will start with the employee’s other annual benefits. The monthly premiums are then deducted from the employee’s paycheck post-taxes.
“Benefitfocus is committed to sourcing and securing the products and services that improve lives with benefits. We offer the industry’s largest benefit catalog so our customers can provide their employees with all the resources they need to care for themselves and their families,” said Benefitfocus President & CEO, Ray August.
“Adding Haven Life’s Salary Protection to our Benefit Catalog provides a new and important life insurance product that employers can seamlessly access and directly provide to employees. We’re proud to partner with an innovator like Haven Life, who cares so deeply about making life insurance more accessible for everyone.”
