AVON, CONNECTICUT, USA (February 13, 2018)

For the first time, the percentage of employees who own at least one voluntary product exceeds the percentage who do not own any voluntary products, according to Eastbridge’s MarketVision - The Employee Viewpoint Spotlight™ Report. This represents an increase of 13 percentage points (on an overall weighted-average basis) over the same finding in the 2015 study. Furthermore, most employees continue to own more than one voluntary product, with accident and whole/universal life being the top two voluntary products owned in this year’s study.
