About voluntary benefits

Voluntary benefits (sometimes known as supplemental insurance or employee-paid benefits) are offered by the employer through the workplace where employees can choose to buy them in addition to any core benefits they may already get. They can be 100% employee-paid, so they don't have to impact the employer's budget. They can be packaged with the employer's core benefits offering to:

  • Provide a more competitive benefits package
  • Help fill gaps in existing benefit coverages
  • Realize tax savings for the business and employees
  • Enable employees to tailor the benefits package to help suit their needs.

    Voluntary benefits are part of Colonial Life’s offering along with other group and individual coverages. For more information, take a look at the simple guide to voluntary benefits page.
