Insurance for the Self Employed

Main Features

  • Small business and self-employed worker insurance is a group insurance plan, but you buy it individually. It is specially designed to meet the needs of self-employed workers, owners of very small businesses (ten employees or fewer), and salaried employees with no group insurance at work.
  • It offers most of the benefits available under a group insurance plan:
    • Disability insurance (short or long term);
    • Life insurance (individual and spousal);
    • Dismemberment, accidental fracture, and accidental death insurance;
    • Life and accident insurance for children;
    • Hospital, medical, and paramedical insurance;
    • Dental insurance;
    • Business expense insurance.
  • Insured parties select the combination of coverage that suits them best.

Major Advantages

  • This insurance is designed to meet the financial security needs of workers during their working lives, when they need it most.
  • It offers benefits similar to those of a group plan.
  • Because this is flexible insurance, insured parties enjoy coverage tailored to their individual needs, lifestyles, and budgets.
