Assurant Works® Helps HR Managers Simplify Enrollment and Employees Confidently Choose Their Benefits

Kansas City, Mo. (July 28, 2014) – Every year when annual enrollment comes around millions of employees select medical plans and voluntary benefits they may or may not understand. Some employees make clear choices, some guess and some choose to do nothing.

Meanwhile, human resource managers scamper to provide better communications, clearer answers and more pertinent choices. They stretch their minds and digital file drawers to track, comply, retain, administer, monitor and re-enroll employees. Then, the cycle starts all over again.

Life just got better for employees and HR managers alike.  Assurant Employee Benefits, a leading provider of voluntary benefits, offers a suite of services and tools to ease the pain of annual enrollment. Assurant Works includes professional benefits communication and enrollment and electronic data exchange capabilities. Together these voluntary services make enrolling in and administering voluntary benefit plans easier for employees and employers.

Now employees, Jack and Jill who have vastly different needs, can decide if dental, vision or disability coverage is exactly what they need or if cancer, gap or critical illness make more sense as their ideal voluntary selections.  Jack may choose to enroll in cancer coverage because of his family’s history while Jill enrolls in a gap insurance plan because she only has catastrophic health coverage.

“Employers today must offer deep and wide benefits to help attract and retain employees and balance the cost of doing so,” says Kevin Seeker, vice president of benefits communication and administrative services. “Assurant Works helps employers implement and manage their voluntary benefits plans easily while helping employees truly understand and value the benefits they are getting or helping pay for.”

Assurant Works services, available separately or together, turn communication confusion into confidence, enrollment complexity into clarity, and administrative chaos into control. To learn more about the entire suite, visit
