Summary

LIMRA recently asked full-time employees with insurance benefits what changes they made to their benefits package during their 2020 open enrollment period. The research found that:

  • The pandemic played an indirect role in many employees’ decision-making;
  • A desire for additional protection drove employees to make changes.
