Last week, UNUM announced that all eligible employees with enrolled dependent(s) will be able to cover their children until age 26 regardless of their marital or student status. This announcement is effective for benefits such as the life insurance policy StaffScapes currently offers for all employees that work 30 or more hours per week. Prompted by regulations outlined in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), UNUM made the move to streamline benefits administration and increase satisfaction among its policy holders . This decision is completely voluntary as supplemental insurance carriers are not subject to PPACA regulations. StaffScapes is pleased to have added the Unum products in January of 2011.
