A Plan to Suit Each Person
Employers commonly opt for a “Traditional Benefit Plan,” which is typically fully insured and administered by an insurance company. This plan provides defined insurance benefits like Life, AD&D, Dependent Life, Short Term and Long Term Disability, and Critical Illness Insurance, along with preset Extended Health and Dental benefits. Large companies prefer this plan due to its broad employee coverage and full eligibility, regardless of pre-existing medical conditions.
However, there are two major drawbacks to consider. Firstly, the employer cannot participate in the ownership of the Extended Health and Dental components, as the insurance company retains all premiums to maintain profitability. When target loss ratios are not met, insurers raise premiums, leading to unexpected increases each year. Secondly, insurers administer the plan but do not actively manage it, leaving employers unprepared for renewal surprises.

An employee benefit plan is to improve the welfare of an employee through insuring them in medical, health, and hospitalization areas, and to protect them in the event of sickness, accident, or death.
When it comes to mandatory or statutory benefits that employees must receive in Canada, this includes pair vacation, holidays and overtime, a Canada Pension Plan, Employment Insurance, and Workers Compensation premiums.
If you offer your employees an employee benefits plan, this often helps to attract, retain, and motivate your employees, as well as make them feel valued and protected.
