COVID-19 has made everyone acutely aware that an illness can dramatically impact their ability to work, pay bills and support their families and the need for comprehensive insurance to protect their financial well-being. That makes this year’s enrollment more important than ever, as many employees are reevaluating their needs and seeking to enhance those protections. Whether your workforce is still working remotely, returning to your worksites or anywhere in between, enrollment is not only possible but essential. 

In this webcast, learn how virtual enrollment will allow your employees to make informed decisions and adapt to new realities no matter where they’re located.
