3. Fosters a healthy workplace.
Benefits help foster a healthy, productive workforce and help employees manage their health by reducing absenteeism and improving productivity.
4. Group buying power = attractive rates.
You and your employees have access to insurance at a reduced cost compared to most individual medical plans.
5. Tax deductible business expense.
The premiums paid by the employer are a business expense deduction, making your Employee Benefits Plan cost effective.
An Employee Benefits Plan is an arrangement to share the financial risk of health related expenses among a group of people. With an Employee Benefits Plan, when a member of the group becomes ill or requires service, she is financially compensated by the plan according to the terms of the contract.
Businesses with as few as 2 employees can qualify for a plan!
Designing an Employee Benefits Plan that meets your business’ needs and the needs of your employees takes careful planning. Elementus Wealth Management can help you determine the benefits you require to build a plan that effectively aligns with your business.
