Learn about small employers’ views of offering insurance, retirement, and other employee benefits.

Summary

The vast majority of employers have fewer than 100 employees. However, these businesses are less likely than their larger counterparts to offer insurance and retirement benefits. What benefits are small businesses currently offering, and what are their plans for the future? How has this changed over time? To answer these questions and more, LIMRA conducted an online survey of 1,504 U.S. small employers with 2 to 99 employees in late 2018.
