As employers compete for top talent, the needs and priorities of millennials are rapidly shaping the benefits landscape. However, the traditional picture of the millennial benefits consumer, one who is more focused on immediate, debt-related financial stress is more typical of millennials born from 1988 -1995. Millennials born in the early 80s are likely to be on more stable financial footing and will be more risk-averse. Our Chief Product Officer, Scott Evans, discussed how the right technology can aid in serving this diverse group with Employee Benefit Adviser.

Affordable Care Act Update

The IRS announced a 30 day extension of the deadline to furnish certain ACA forms to employees. However, the deadline to file with the IRS has not changed. Our most recent Compliance Check explains what this means for your business.

We've opened a few more spots for our ACA services. While the extension may ease some reporting stress, don't put off your preparations. Deadlines are approaching quickly, so request a demo today.

Focus on Wellness

A new year means many of your employees are likely recommitting to their health and wellness for 2018. Supporting their efforts with a well-planned wellness program can have a major impact on your benefits costs, as well as being a valuable engagement and retention tool. You'll only reap the benefits if you avoid costly penalties. Our compliance expert, Larry Grudzien, will cover the compliance issues you need to know in a one-hour webinar on Tuesday, January 18; register now! Can't wait that long? All of our past webinars are available here.
