Weichert, REALTORS® has announced a new benefits program that offers its sales associates nationwide access to comprehensive health and wellness plans, including medical, dental, vision, term life insurance and more.
Available to associates from Weichert’s company-owned offices as well as Weichert Real Estate Affiliates’ franchised offices, the Weichert LiveWell program is designed to provide peace of mind to individuals and their families by offering high-quality coverage at competitive rates. Medical plans are provided by insurers Cigna and Anthem Blue Cross through BenAdvance.
“At Weichert, we want to help our sales associates build careers and thrive with us both professionally and personally,” said Denise Smith, president of Real Estate Services for the Weichert Companies, in a statement. “Our sales associates already utilize one of the most advanced technology platforms in the business for customer management and streamlined marketing. Access to affordable healthcare through the Weichert LiveWell program is another way the company is helping to ensure that our associates have everything they need to lead a successful and healthy life.”
Typically, healthcare options have been limited or cost-prohibitive for real estate agents, most of whom do not have access to traditional employer-provided healthcare, said the company. According to the National Association of REALTORS®’ 2020 Health Insurance Study, only 2% of real estate agent members obtained their health insurance coverage through a real estate firm, instead relying on a government plan or a spouse’s employer.
“Over the past 18 months, many people have shifted their priorities. Self-care and the health and well-being of their families is more important than ever,” said Bill Scavone, president and COO of Weichert Real Estate Affiliates, Inc., in a statement. “We recognize the value in helping to improve the overall health and wellness of our associates, as well as the correlation between happiness and productivity. That is why we are thrilled to offer our network’s associates the new Weichert LiveWell program and a choice of affordable plan options.”
To deliver the Weichert LiveWell plan options to associates, the company has partnered with BenAdvance, a web-based marketplace that allows sales associates to shop for and purchase supplemental benefits from blue chip carriers. BenAdvance Benefits Specialists are available to assist sales associates in choosing the best coverage options for their needs. In addition to medical, dental, vision and term life insurance, Weichert LiveWell plan options include accident insurance, hospital indemnity, critical illness, pet insurance and identity protection. Enrollment is on a rolling basis.
