We are pleased to announce that Edward T MacConnell, President of Total Benefit Solutions has earned the certification of Certified Voluntary Worksite Professional from the National Association of Health Underwriters.

Voluntary/Worksite products are not new to the employee benefit industry. However, the surge of interest in these products has accelerated as employers seek ways to help attract and retain talent. The industry has responded swiftly with new products, new features, new enrollment technologies and many changes to the underwriting rules of these products. This has created new responsibilities for agents, brokers and consultants as advising clients in this area will differentiate their value to the consumers they serve.

Certified Voluntary Worksite Professionals will posses a strong technical knowledge of the rules and regulations pertaining to various types of voluntary/worksite products and proven methods for communicating those options to employers and employees in a compelling way. Including but not limited to:

  • An overview of all the voluntary/worksite products that are available to employers
  • “Why employers would consider voluntary/worksite over traditional ancillary
  • Consider the market drivers of voluntary products at the worksite
  • Provides a complete review of the underwriting rules and enrollment tools that are emerging
  • Suggests enrollment and communication strategies
  • Review the taxation issues associated with voluntary/worksite products
  • Explain the HR/Administrative issues that employers need to know
