Most benefits brokers now sell employee-paid benefits.[@@]
Eastbridge Consulting Group Inc., Avon, Conn., has included that finding in a new report on worksite insurance distribution.
The percentage of benefits brokers who offer voluntary benefits has increased to more than 90% this year, up from 70% in 2001, Eastbridge says.
Eastbridge researchers are basing that figure on a recent survey of more than 500 benefits brokers and a comparable survey conducted in 2001.
