Mosaic indicating potential areas of voluntary benefits

Voluntary benefits—employers have traditionally offered them, but employees’ enrollment and utilization have been lackluster at best.

But, like many other things, voluntary benefits have been up-ended by the pandemic. A recent report from Aon finds a 41 percent increase in the availability of voluntary benefits from employers between 2021 and 2022. According to Aon, this growth has been driven by both employers’ desire to recruit and retain talent, and employees’ renewed interest in supplemental health insurance products.

“During the last two years, it seems every employee knows someone who was hospitalized or fell gravely ill from Covid-19,” said Dani McCauley, U.S. customer experience leader for consumer benefit solutions at Aon. “As a result, there is an increased awareness of risks around hospitalization and critical illness, and along with the growth of high-deductible health plans, employees are keen to hedge against this potential cost burden.”
