Employee Group Benefits
Why you Should Choose a Beneficiary
Life Insurance Beneficiary Designation
Most employee group benefit plans include Life insurance coverage. The coverage is normally in place as long as there is an active plan and the employee is eligible and enrolled. When a plan includes Life Insurance, it is critical that each employee chooses someone to receive the benefit after their death. They can designate anyone they wish – family members, friends or a favourite charity. They can have one beneficiary, or a number of them.

The MDM Mobile App
Easy and straight forward
MDM Insurance Services is a sister company to ASSOCIUM. They provide claims adjudication services for most of our plans. The MDM Mobile App is available for download from the Apple App Store or Google Play.

What sets MDM’s mobile app from others is its ease of function. With only 6 options to choose from, members can select what they need with minimal steps making this app one of the more user-friendly of its kind. The term “less is more” is true to form as users can seamlessly connect and search for relevant content.

Some Things to Consider When Employees are Working Remotely

Covid-19 changed the way many organizations do business. Many employers have shifted to a full or partial remote-work arrangement. Remote work presents many challenges for both employers and employees. Lack of face-to-face supervision, keeping employees engaged and motivated and managing the work environment are just some of the challenges faced by employers and employees.
