It’s tough for employees to do their best at work when faced with challenges such as finding child or elder care, dealing with substance abuse or managing family relationships. That’s where DisabilityGuidance® (provided by ComPsych®) can help.
DisabilityGuidance is available for all employees covered by Symetra Group Disability Income Insurance and their eligible dependents.
- Five confidential face-to-face sessions with a counselor, financial planner or lawyer each calendar year. An additional five sessions are available in the event of a covered disability claim.
- Unlimited, free telephonic support with general guidance counselors.
- Online resources and tools, including a will preparation program that helps employees create a legally binding will that is valid in all 50 states. A simple will costs just $14.99; printing and mailing services are also available for an additional $9.99. Online support from licensed attorneys is also available, if needed.
Health Care Navigation
Employees generally find themselves on their own when it comes to dealing with their medical plan. HealthChampionSM (provided by ComPsych) provides administrative and clinical support to help employees navigate their medical plan benefits in order to make informed, educated decisions about their care.
