A Metlife news release said the Employee Benefits Simplifier gives employees recommendations about coverage levels and benefits selection for people in their circumstances.
Taking into account the answer to basic questions about life stage and preferences, the online tool creates a holistic set of guidelines and product information based on the employee’s profile, according to the announcement.
The news announcement said the output delivers a way for employees to view benefits choices to consider, broken out by product categories: medical, dental, long-term disability, life insurance, retirement, and employee-paid or “voluntary”
benefits. Each category suggests options that might be appropriate for the employees’ profile, and makes recommendations for other, less traditional protection options.
Finally, the different choices are presented, offering the pros and cons for various solutions, with explanations of how aspects of the plan may work for the employee.
The tool is available at www.metlife.com/benefits .
