Key featured insights

The following information highlights life insurance and critical illness coverage within the report; however, we also create reports for our accident and hospital indemnity products.

Overall client score

The Secure Insights score represents how financially prepared employees are in the event of a death, accident, critical illness or hospital stay.

To reach the score, we subtract existing resources from the financial need and come up a gap amount.

The score is calculated for each individual on a client census, then aggregated to a combined, weighted average score.

Average employee insurance needs

We chose common, simplified claim scenarios to assess need — in this case, the common medical event is a cancer diagnosis.

Medical costs such as deductibles and coinsurance are considered, as are non-medical costs associated with transportation, food and housing.

Insurance gaps

This insight shows the gaps at various age ranges across an employee population. 

In this case, 53% of the population would have a financial gap in the event of a death.  

The space between the average existing resources (vertical bars) and the average product need (horizontal lines) visually depicts the gap in the graph. On average, employees need an additional $109,321 in financial protection.

Population overview

Understanding employee population is key. The population overview represents the demographic breakdown of a client’s population that builds a foundation for the insights in the rest of the report.

Marital status, the presence of dependent children and salary are critical variables when calculating need — and therefore have a significant impact on the analysis.

*Based on census data as of 01/01/2020 and adjusted to reflect US population data for greater accuracy. This adjustment is applied to all spouse and/or dependent information throughout the report due to data quality of the census file.

Product enrollment

This insight highlights the enrollment in a plan — in this example, critical illness insurance.

It can help the client understand those enrolled by their family status and the level or dollar amount and shows the client-specific plan design.

Non-participant data

Secure Insights can also help you better understand who is not participating in employer plans.

This shows the demographics of non-participants, specifically marital status and dependents that can have an impact on their need.

Based on what we know about participants, this helps illustrate who may have a need so we can better educate them about the benefits of supplemental health with targeted communication.

Insurance gap demographics

Secure Insights groups employees with similar demographic characteristics into segments, creating a persona for each identified segment to help clients better understand the portions of their population with the largest gap.

This persona allows us to tailor product solutions, including plan maximums, that will better fit with the identified segments.

Plan design benchmarking

Secure Insights also provides plan design benchmarking. Competitive benefits help employers attract and retain talent. That's why seeing how their insurance plan compares to their peers' and the market is meaningful. Benchmarking data gives them confidence in their purchasing decision and helps inform plan design changes.
