After an unpredictable 2020 and with a COVID-19 vaccine in the early stages of distribution, optimism and fresh starts are the sentiments ringing true right now.

However, the health and financial challenges of 2020 will likely linger for some time. In fact, the 2020-2021 Aflac WorkForces Report found that 67% of U.S. employees experienced at least a minor financial impact because of COVID-19.

Given the importance of every dollar during this time, brokers and agents can work with human resource managers to ensure all aspects of policies are discussed — from wellness claims to insurance riders. This ensures HR managers have the knowledge and resources to advise employees on how to best use their benefits.
