DMECResources, Tools & Tactics Archives


The Department of Labor (DOL) released a letter approving the use of auto-enroll for employer sponsored disability insurance. But what does this really mean for employers and their employees come enrollment season? The DOL letter presents a great opportunity for employers to simplify their disability enrollment process, but successful enrollment depends on a solid strategy that includes consistent employee education and communication.

This session explained how the auto-enroll function works and what it means for HR administrators, while exploring the value of disability programs, including the services that come with coverage such as vocational rehabilitation and accommodation support for employers, and employee assistance programs. Discussion included best practices for implementation and employee communications. It also shared results of surveys conducted by Sun Life that provide perspectives on auto-enrollment from both employers and employees alike.
