As an employer in today’s business world, JFA Insurance Brokerage & Associates, Inc. knows how important it is to provide health insurance to the most valuable asset of your business – your employees. By providing each employee with a plan that meets his or her expectations, it can help your business lower turnover and keep a staff that is healthy and insured with peace of mind.

At JFA Insurance Brokerage & Associates, Inc., we are proud to offer a variety of group health Insurance plans for small to mid-sized businesses – for quality assurance and additional benefits. Our health insurance specialists will work with you one-on-one to develop a group plan that is not only affordable, but complements your business’s needs.

Which Plan is Right for your Business?

Group health insurance plans typically include either indemnity plans, such as Fee-for-Service (FFS), or managed care plans, including: Health Maintenance Organization (HMO), Preferred Provider Organization (PPO), and Point-of Service (POS).

The major difference between Indemnity and managed care plans is the types of providers, choices of doctors and physicians, out of pocket expenses, and medical bill payments.

Since group health insurance options vary from state to state in coverage options and benefits, as well as the size of your business, it is important to discuss your business’ Health Insurance needs with a specialist at JFA Insurance Brokerage & Associates, Inc. who can help you find a solution that is ideal and feasible for you and your employees.

When it comes to protecting your assets, one of the most important things you can insure is not a material object like your car or home – it is your ability to work and earn a living. At JFA Insurance Brokerage & Associates, Inc., we know that like most people, you depend on your income to pay bills, put food on the table, and provide for your family. But if you get sick or injured and cannot work, you will need to be protected in order to maintain your standard of living.

With disability income Insurance from JFA Insurance Brokerage & Associates, Inc., you can continue to pay your bills and keep you and your family from going into serious debt. If you cannot work as a result of injury or other illness, a disability insurance policy will pay a portion of your income, usually between 50 and 70 percent.

Policies can vary greatly depending on the individual, and the duration and amount for which you are reimbursed are determined by the nature of the disabling accident. Like life insurance, disability is purchased for a period of time, such as a two or five-year term, and benefits will only be paid if you become disabled during the term of the policy.

Choosing the right disability coverage is important. In the event you become disabled, you will want to ensure that you and your family have enough coverage. A representative at JFA Insurance Brokerage & Associates, Inc. will look at the individual factors in your life and work situation and help design the best policy that meets your personal insurance needs.

Many individuals consider life insurance to be the cornerstone of a sound financial plan. And while no one likes to think about passing on, Life Insurance can relieve you of the financial worry your loved ones may face in the event of your passing. 

Your beneficiaries will be able to use your Life Insurance policy to help pay for anything from expensive funeral costs and estate taxes to making up for lost income or funding your child’s education. It can even be used to continue payments on your mortgage to help ensure that the family home stays in the family.

At JFA Insurance Brokerage & Associates, Inc., we know that choosing a Life Insurance plan is a big decision with many important factors to consider. Our knowledgeable team of insurance professionals is committed to walking you through the process and providing you with the best insurance solution to give you and your family the reassurance they deserve. 

Types of Individual Life Insurance

JFA Insurance Brokerage & Associates, Inc. offers several different coverage options for your consideration including term life, whole life, and more.

Term Life – This is typically the simplest and least expensive insurance option. Term life insurance provides coverage at a fixed rate for a specified period of time. It’s a benefit policy that’s used primarily to cover financial responsibilities of the insured, with the benefit to be paid only if the insured were to die during the specified term. Most term life policies can be converted to a more permanent insurance solution such as whole life or universal life insurance.   

There are two types of term life insurance: 

  • Annual Renewable Term is purchased for a period of one year, with the death benefit to be paid only if the insured were to die during that one-year term, along with the option to renew after the term period.
  • Level Term Life guarantees a fixed premium for a given period of time, usually in terms of 10, 15, 20, or 30 years. Your premium is based on your age and coverage options, with longer terms being more expensive.
  • Whole Life – As the most common type of permanent insurance, a whole life policy guarantees a death benefit for the lifetime of the insured as well as a cash value account for savings. Your premium remains constant throughout the duration of policy while payments over and above your premium are credited to your savings, which earn a fixed rate of interest. 

JFA Insurance Brokerage & Associates, Inc. is here for you

There are many things to take into account when purchasing life insurance, and changes in your life situation can reflect changes in your insurance requirements. That’s why it’s important to carefully consider the different policy options and ensure that you have the right solution to meet your long-term life insurance needs. 

An insurance specialist with JFA Insurance Brokerage & Associates, Inc. will review your current life insurance situation and help you design a policy to plan for the future. 

At the end of the day, one of the biggest investments you can make is an investment in yourself. 

As your personal situations change (i.e., marriage, birth of a child or job promotion), so will your life insurance needs. Care should be taken to ensure this product is suitable for your long-term life insurance needs. You should weigh any associated costs before making a purchase. Life insurance has fees and charges associated with it that include costs of insurance that vary with such characteristics of the insured as gender, health and age, and has additional charges for riders that customize a policy to fit your individual needs.

With the passing of the Paid Family Leave Benefits Law, a paid-leave of absence will become a mandatory employee benefit in the state of New York beginning on January 1, 2018. The program, which will be the longest and most comprehensive of its kind, will provide wage replacement to employees so that they can bond with a child, care for a family-member with a serious medical condition, or relieve the pressures caused by the absence of someone in the military. In addition to job-protected time off, employees will also be guaranteed the continuation of their health benefits.

For employers, Paid Family Leave (PFL) constitutes new compliance obstacles, in addition to staffing challenges and payroll management issues. Although the premium will be funded through employee deductions, businesses will also be required to hold PFL coverage. Please contact JFA to review your DBL policy and learn more about how PFL could affect your business.

At JFA Insurance Brokerage & Associates, Inc., we work hard to provide the best protection plans for businesses and their employees.
