The proposed rules would fix the so-called “family glitch” that currently requires employer plan affordability to be based on the employee-only cost for coverage, while not taking into consideration the cost for the employee’s family to participate.

Posted by Diane Viviano on Mar 9, 2021 2:27:17 PM

As an insurance professional for over 30 years, I’ve learned the importance of having proper coverage, including an umbrella policy.  Not only is it important because, for a few hundred dollars a year, you can increase your liability coverage significantly, but because it gives you an opportunity to be in a better position to “right a wrong” when necessary.
