Colonial Life & Accident Insurance Company Unveils Two New Life Insurance Plans

Colonial Life & Accident Insurance Company's newest life insurance products offer America's employers and their employees more options to protect and preserve what they have worked so hard to build. The new products include an employer-paid group term life plan and a long-term care benefit rider on whole life insurance policies. Colonial Life's new group term life insurance product allows employers to conveniently provide a popular benefit to employees. Term life insurance is an affordable option that can help employees and their families replace lost income in the event of a death and is guaranteed-issue, meaning no health questions for employees. The employer-paid option uses a composite rate structure, which means the same rate for all employees, regardless of age or tobacco use. The group term life insurance coverage also can be offered on an employee-paid basis and provides options tailored for both large and small accounts. For small accounts, program administration is simple. For larger accounts, employers can customize additional options to fit the needs of their employees.
