Decision Support Tool Helps Educate Employees About Voluntary Benefits

Voluntary insurance decision support tool

Employees want easy access to information when selecting their benefits. With the Voluntary Decision Support Tool, employees have a resource to help them make informed choices. They can review rates and claim examples. The tool also lets them take a self-paced benefits tour.

Two Ways for Employees to Make Informed Decisions

The Voluntary DST lets you tailor the enrollment experience. During open enrollment, you can customize messages on the Voluntary landing and enrollment pages.

You'll have the option to use our Persona-Based DST when you offer Accident, Critical Illness1 or Hospital Indemnity insurance.2 This tool uses customer insights to personalize the Voluntary enrollment experience for employees. As a result, they receive an introduction to the DST that fits their benefit-buying profile.

Sharpen Your Communication Strategy

Our Persona-Based DST includes a complimentary Voluntary Enrollment Analysis. This report details DST usage metrics and breaks down employee types at your organization. It also provides proprietary data from The Standard about employee buying and communications preferences, so you can shape messages for Voluntary benefits and more.
