Benefits Consultant, AFLAC
After working for 30 yrs in the financial services business in Boston, Richard made a career change to working in supplemental benefits with Aflac – the nations #1 ranked voluntary benefit provider. Supplemental benefits are a much more important and desired element for businesses and their overall benefits offering to their employees. These products help to attract and retain quality employees. High deductible health plans are a bigger and bigger percentage of major medical insurance plans offered today. These products help keep your employees more financially stable in the event of a major accident or illness that keeps them out of work and/or requires hospitalization. Statistics show that employees would consider changing jobs even though making a little less money if their benefits offering was more robust. Let Aflac help you and your franchise be more competitive with the addition of these products.
