Taking care of your employee’s health comes at a cost, and with rising medical and life expenses, as a business owner, you need to make sure you’re getting the best employee benefits package possible. We know it’s easy to get overwhelmed with all the details when setting up employee benefit insurance plans for your organization.
Lifetime Benefits can be your plan administrator for group benefits by handling all administration tasks and employee onboarding so owners can be completely hands-free. As an added bonus, we provide free financial planning tools for company owners and staff members at no additional cost.
An employee benefit plan for an organization is also known as an “employee benefits package.” A high-quality benefits package will help organizations retain employees and recruit new ones. In addition, employees will feel more loyalty to your company when their health and wellness needs are met. Finally, to help your employees achieve their retirement goals, you can combine your group benefits with a Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP) or Pension Plan.
Group benefits plans help employees reduce out-pocket health expenses. Some expenses may be covered by a provincial or territorial plan in British Columbia, but usually not all. Routine medical needs like doctor visits, prescription drugs, eye care, and dental usually have a portion left over that’s not covered. This is where a good health and dental insurance plan can help.
The right plan is one that covers all your company’s health and wellness needs. And for any gaps in coverage, we offer Cost Plus / Health Spending Accounts. Health Spending Accounts (HSA) and Cost Plus accounts are non-insured flexible benefits plans that provide additional coverage beyond what is provided under the group health insurance policy. These types of plans are typically used to cover medical costs that exceed the limits of the primary medical coverage offered through an employer’s group health plan.
Our goal is to make your Group Benefits experience as simple as possible. Once you select the benefits package that works for your company, we will support you and your employees with every other aspect of navigating your plan.

Trips to the dentist are often one of the most significant health expenses. Dental insurance plans can cover major expenses such as surgery, crowns, dentures, prosthodontic services and orthodontics, in addition to routine tasks such as oral examinations, cleaning, X-rays, fluoride and fillings.
Nobody imagines losing the ability to earn a living, which is why planning ahead with insurance is so important. Disability insurance can protect your income if you become disabled or injured and unable to work.

Employee Assistance Program and Perks
When employees feel that their employer cares about their well-being, the company experiences higher production and job satisfaction. Employee Assistance Programs offer counseling, coaching, and more, including gym memberships, vitamins, and sports equipment….all to facilitate employee well-being.
Personal Health and Dental
Government health benefits don’t always cover the expenses you need. In addition, some employment opportunities don’t offer a group benefits plan. So, if you are self-employed or a contract worker, retired, work part-time, are a student, or want to supplement your insurance plan, we have a plan for you.
Health and Wellness Spending Account
This benefit offers employees additional health-related expenses above and beyond what is covered in their plan. It can also be a stand-alone plan giving your employees a flexible allowance to choose the exact benefits they need and use. It also serves as a tax advantage to your company, as all expenses can be written off and employees receive the money tax-free.
Group RRSPs and Pensions
Your employees will feel that their retirement goals are intact with our flexible RRSP and pension plans. We have options to cover any company size and financial planning objectives.
