M

12:30pm – 1:15pm

What Transamerica has seen in 80 years of serving hard-working Americans with retirement plans (and a half century in workplace benefits) is that wealth and health are inextricably linked. Rising healthcare costs threaten employers’ ability to compete in their marketplace. Many are implementing strategies to slow cost growth, such as lower-cost, high-deductible health plans to enhance value and improve outcomes for their employees. However, too few employees are taking advantage of high-deductible health plans (HDHPs), because…employees are increasingly struggling to cover co-pays, deductibles and other out-of-pocket expenses. Learn what strategies employers are using to help.

We understand that working for yourself isn’t the same as working for someone else. This isn’t just what you do for a living, it’s a huge part of who you are. And it needs to be protected against the everyday risks of doing business. This seminar will consist of a deep dive into Property and Liability insurance. Property Insurance covers the physical property your business owns, leases, or rents and protects against fire, theft, vandalism, etc. Liability Insurance provides coverage for bodily injury and property damage that you may be legally obligated to pay due to your negligence. We are here to make sure you are adequately covered to get your business up and running. Followed by Q&A.
