Eastbridge publishes three types of reports: Spotlight™ Reports, Frontline™ Reports, and Sales Reports
These reports provide carriers and other insurance professionals with up-to-date, market-sensitive information — on a targeted and cost-effective basis — that can be used to build, refine, or even confirm their business strategies. Approximately 12–15 Spotlight™ Reports are published each year, and we currently have more than 40 studies available covering virtually every voluntary/worksite topic.

Eastbridge Frontline™ Reports provide timely data on new or breaking topics. Because the facts are often still emerging or are in transition, Frontline™ Reports are brief summaries of the facts as they were when the data was collected. These reports are not available for purchase. In fact, the only way you can get a copy of these valuable reports is by being a member of one of Eastbridge's Information Partner™ programs or by participating in the survey itself. Eastbridge completes approximately four Frontline™ Reports per year.

Eastbridge Sales Reports have become the “gold standard” for the voluntary industry. We have more companies participating in these reports and track more data than any other Sales Report for the industry. All carriers involved in the voluntary/worksite business are eligible to participate in the sales reports, and only participants receive a report of the survey findings. Surveys are distributed at the end of January each year.
Eastbridge’s latest Sales Reports include:
U.S. Voluntary/Worksite Sales Report — This report has been published annually since 1999 and includes data from over 60 carriers on voluntary sales overall, by product line, by filing platform, and by distribution/broker segment. We also monitor takeover rates and sales by case size.
U.S. State EPI and ESI Data — This report is an extension of the annual Sales Report. It includes state-by-state sales and inforce data and provides two measures that relate these data to the number of employed Americans in each state.
