I feel with the help of the great leadership team they have over at Local 9, we were able to do a good job educating members on what benefits they may already have and the gaps and need for further benefits to supplement those already in place.
CHICAGO (PRWEB) February 10, 2018
Cornerstone Benefits Management, a company that provides comprehensive and affordable group insurance plans to Union members, announced that they have completed a successful first open enrollment period with the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local Union No. 9. Members of the Union, based out of Hillside, IL, enrolled in a variety of plans including Short Term Disability, Long Term Disability, and Life Insurance. Active members of Local 9 were eligible for these plans without having to fill out medical questionnaires or having to receive physicals. Also, members who had or have had health issues were not declined coverage.
“During the open enrollment period it is very important for me to connect with as many members as I can,” said Ryan Crow, Benefit Specialist, Cornerstone Benefits Management. “I feel with the help of the great leadership team they have over at Local 9, we were able to do a good job educating members on what benefits they may already have and the gaps and need for further benefits to supplement those already in place.”
Cornerstone Benefits Management attributes the success of Local 9’s first open enrollment to a number of factors including strong communication between Cornerstone, Local 9’s leadership, and members of the Union through mail, emails, texts and website announcements. In addition, Cornerstone communicated directly with Union members while attending many Local 9 events such as meetings, training classes and social events. Cornerstone also made enrollment easier for members by giving them the option to enroll over the phone, through the mail or online.
