Mutual of Omaha Announces New Online Enrollment System

September 27, 2010 ( - Mutual of Omaha Insurance Company has announced a new online enrollment system that it says will expand the personalization of services the company provides to support voluntary insurance enrollment.

According to the announcement, employees will receive communication about their employer’s specific benefit offerings, as well as the ability to enroll online. The enhanced online enrollment option will also streamline the creation of personalized enrollment materials (both paper and Web); enhance online options for open enrollment and new hire periods; offer a wide range of tracking and reporting options for employers and their benefit brokers; and reinforce the need for coverage before prompting an employee to enroll or decline.   

Other benefits include a secure environment for confidential employee information, a portal for new hires, and additional flexibility in coordinating benefit enrollment events with core plan enrollment periods.   

“Improving our online enrollment options satisfies the enrollment needs of the increasing number of employers that have workers dispersed across several locations, and employees who are unable to attend a group meeting,” said Marty Traynor, vice president of voluntary benefits at Mutual of Omaha, in the announcement.
