Colonial Life, SBA to host webinar on voluntary benefits

coloniallifeColonial Life and the Small Business Administration are offering a free webinar on May 6 about voluntary benefits that can be offered to employees.

The webinar, which begins at 4 p.m., is being held in conjunction with Colonial Life’s sponsorship of the National Small Business Week, May 4-8.

Only 52% of employees at small businesses – with fewer than 100 employees – have a benefits package compared with 87% of employees who work for larger companies, according to a survey conducted by Harris Poll for the insurance company.

At least 40% of employees at small businesses said in the poll they were interested in purchasing financial protection benefits such as life insurance, short-term disability insurance, critical illness insurance and accident insurance.

“This is a great opportunity for us to show business owners how we can help them protect what they and their employees have worked so hard to build,” said Gil Youmans, who will conduct the webinar for Colonial Life. Youmans is director of small market solutions at Colonial Life.

Small business owners can ask questions during the webinar or participate throughout the year on Twitter with #askcoloniallife. They can also stay informed about small business issues and benefits at our Small Business Hub ( or our small business Twitter account (@coloniallifebiz).
