Sickness insurance

Financial support for employees who become to unwell to work.

What is Sickness insurance?

Sickness insurance (also known as illness insurance) is a type of insurance benefit that covers employees in the instance that they become too unwell to work. 

Sickness insurance involves your company paying a premium which then pays out a lump sum or a regular monthly income to an employee if they become sick. 

At Ben, we've partnered with leading sickness insurance providers to offer your team the best level of support for them. 

Why should you offer sickness insurance?

Providing your employees with sickness insurance comes with benefits to both you and them. 

Benefits to employees:

  • Financial backup in the instance they become too unwell to work.
  • Peace of mind that their dependents won't be affected if they're unable to work. 

Benefits to you:

  • Improve attraction 
  • Improve employee retention 
  • Reduces the cost to you if an employee cannot work 

Why offer sickness insurance through Ben?

Ben makes offering sickness insurance easy. You'll work with a benefits consultant to help you determine if this is the right benefit for you and how it will fit in with your overall package. From there we'll help you find a provider at a preferred price through our global broker network.

Our onboarding team ensures all employees are set up properly, and with ongoing self serve enrolment, as well as automated provider communications. All admin work is taken care of for you, including if you offer various levels of coverage or dependent enrolment.
