To attract and retain the best executive talent available, employee benefits—specifically life and disability insurance—has become a necessary part of the executive benefits package.

Source Brokerage, Inc., can help you design executive benefit plans that provide maximum income protection for executive groups at the lowest premiums.

Individual Disability Income for Executive Groups

Three or More Executives in the Group

Multi-life

Three or more individual disability income insurance policies placed in a year on individuals working for the same employer obtain a 10% premium discount and gender neutral rates. Gender neutral rates are very valuable to females—it can reduce premium up to 40%.
Applications are fully-underwritten.

Guaranteed Standard Issue Disability Insurance

Guaranteed Standard Issue (GSI) Individual DI program, working in concert with a group long-term disability (LTD) plan, can help provide higher level of coverage for employees and can be implemented with limited underwriting and NO MEDICAL EXAMS. These are stand-alone individual DI contracts with own occupation coverage and strong partial and recovery benefits.
While employer-paid benefits are valuable, the typical Group LTD benefit is only about 60% of regular income. And that benefit is usually taxable, so the Group LTD benefit replaces about 42% of regular income. Layering a guaranteed issue individual disability income insurance policy on top of Group LTD can help cover a greater percentage of high earning employees’ income.

Key GSI Features:

  • No medical underwriting
  • Financial documentation limited to an employee census
  • Gender neutral rates, can reduce female premium up to 40%
  • Premium discounts
  • Policies are portable
  • Carve-outs acceptable

GSI plans are available to as few as 3 employees, when mandatory, and 15 employees when voluntary. They can be employer-paid or employee-paid.
