Voluntary Benefits

We have partnered with Colonial Life to offer you and your family the opportunity to participate in some very valuable, personal insurance options. These benefits provide an affordable way to strengthen your family’s financial security. Benefits are paid for through the convenience of payroll deduction, and are yours to keep at the same cost if you change jobs or retire. In addition, there are complimentary benefits that all members can participate in AT NO COST.

Benefits Available Include:

FREE Wellness Discount Card: Point-of-sale discount card that provides up to 60% off dental, vision, pharmacy, and much more – www.wellcardsavings.com.

Accident Insurance: Many employees select this coverage to help cover deductible and co-pay expenses, and other financial inconveniences that an accident may cause. This policy pays cash benefits directly to you, if you have an accidental injury such as a slip and fall, car accident, sports related injury, etc. Coverage on & off job, individual or family coverage available. Benefits are payable for ER visits, broken bones, burns, cuts, back injuries, hospital admissions, physical therapy and much more.

Critical Illness + Cancer Insurance helps offset the out-of-pocket medical and indirect non-medical expenses related to critical illness (such as heart attack, stroke, and kidney disease) and cancer that most medical plans may not cover. This benefit pays out a lump sum upon diagnosis of any of the covered illnesses.

Whole Life Insurance provides death benefit coverage with guaranteed features including cash value accumulation, premium rates and death benefit. Flexible premium payments and coverage amounts.
