The article focuses on the capability of voluntary benefit programs to help small businesses during the recession in the U.S., based on a survey of decision-makers conducted by Accelerant Research. The increase in interest of small businesses in voluntary and supplemental insurance benefits is partly attributed to the challenging market. The significance of supplemental insurance to the overall benefits package is touted by Paul S. Amos II of Aflac. Eric Raymond of Corporate Synergies predicts a rise in voluntary benefits as benefits get lower.
