It doesn’t matter if your employees have been working with you for several years. The subject of employee benefits can be a tricky and complicated one. This is because policies regarding certain benefits—like health insurance—keep changing.

And in order to offer the best policies, you need to keep up with the latest trends in the marketplace.

So when enrolment season comes around, your employees will have a lot of questions regarding the types of benefits they should choose.

Knowing what types of questions are likely to be asked can help you offer the right type of information. Here are a few frequently asked questions when it comes to employee benefits:

Q.1: “What Are the General Types of Employee Benefits I’m Eligible For?”

There are so many options available when it comes to employee benefits. If you’re offering group benefits, make sure to walk your employees through all of the packages.

When it comes to health insurance, there are various options available but most employees are required to provide basic coverage, according to the Affordable Care Act.

This includes prescription coverage, health insurance and dental etc. Other types of group benefits include:

  • Vision Care
  • Short Term And Long Term Disability Insurance
  • Retirement Savings Plans
  • Profit Sharing
  • Life Insurance
  • Health Savings Accounts
  • Flexible Savings Arrangements

Q. 2: “Why Do I Need to Purchase Health Insurance If I Am Healthy?

This is another question employees ask when it comes to health insurance.

Consumers are supposed to purchase health insurance or participate in a health cost-sharing program because under the Affordable Care Act, if they don’t they will have to pay tax penalties.

Q. 3: “How Do I Know What Type of Benefits I Will Need?”

This depends on your employees’ requirements. Different employees have different expectations and needs. This also depends on their medical background, as well their age and gender.

Someone who is eighteen years may have different needs than someone in their mid-thirties. An eighteen year old may not need dental and vision insurance like someone in their late forties.
