The optional life benefit allows employees to supplement the life insurance coverage provided by their benefit plan. Option life coverage can be available to employees only or to both the employee and his or her spouse. Some insurers also offer optional life coverage to dependent children. Medical evidence is required and coverage typically ceases at age 65 or the employee's retirement. Rates are usually based on age bands (e.g. 40-44, 45-49, etc.), gender and smoking status.Premiums for optional life coverage are paid by the employee.
Optional Group Accidental Death & Dismemberment (AD&D)
Optional AD&D coverage provides an accidental death benefit typically equal to the employee's optional life amount.

Health Care Spending Accounts (HCSA or HSA)
A Health Care Spending Account (HCSA), also known as a Health Spending Account (HSA), is an individual employee account that provides reimbursement for eligible health care expenses or other benefits that are not covered under provincial health insurance plans or other benefit plans sponsored by the employer. A Health Spending Account can be implemented on a stand-alone basis within a traditional benefit plan or part of a flexible benefits plan.

Spending accounts can sometimes be the answer to situations where an employer wants to give employees increased involvement and more choice in their benefits while also limiting its financial responsibility. A Health Spending Account is an easy, tax-effective way to offer health and dental benefits choice and self-service to plan members.
