What are voluntary plans?
Voluntary plans are 100% paid by the employee. Employees can choose which voluntary plans are best for their own situation. Some voluntary plans pay cash benefits directly to employees to cover living expenses, lost wages, copayments and deductibles. Other benefits include disability insurance, life insurance, vision insurance, dental insurance, and other plans and services.
