  • Offer a comprehensive program that features both term and permanent coverage options.
  • Be sure you understand the key demographic differences among the workforce, and then address them as part of any and all educational and communication outreach programs.
  • Remind employees that some life events could lead to the need to re-evaluate coverage levels.
  • Offer access to decision-support tools and educational materials (including online income-assessment calculators and tutorials).
