Lincoln Financial Group Enhances Its Accident Insurance Benefit With Seamless Rollover To Lincoln Program
PHILADELPHIA, June 22, 2011 — Lincoln Financial Group (NYSE:LNC) announced the launch of its Rollover to Lincoln Program for Lincoln Accident Insurance, a voluntary group protection benefit that provides employees with cash benefits in the event of an accidental injury. Through this seamless rollover program, employers may consolidate coverage with a single carrier and benefit from a simplified enrollment process.
"As a trusted carrier of voluntary benefits, Lincoln prides itself in providing group participants and employees with high levels of service and support," said Dave Cirulis, Head of Voluntary Marketplace Strategy. "For many employers, rolling over their accident benefits into a Lincoln plan is an easy way to consolidate coverage while knowing they are aligned with a carrier whom they can trust and rely for product and service expertise."
The streamlined rollover process features census enrollment, eliminating the need of an enrollment event. If desired, full support for a delayed enrollment is available to help build employee participation. Additionally, the Rollover to Lincoln Program for Lincoln Accident Insurance allows brokers the ability to easily rollover their client's existing accident coverage while receiving the full commission on the move.
Lincoln Accident Insurance features four plan designs with different cash benefit levels, including Select, Choice, Preferred and Elite, and provides employers with the option to customize their plan by adding riders to meet a group or employees' unique needs. The coverage also provides an array of additional features including:
Coverage of multiple injuries sustained in a single accident
Portable coverage that employees may retain after leaving their company
Composite-rated — or a single rate — for all employees
