Allstate Launches Benefitfocus Web Application

The goal is to unify disparate enrollment processes into one site.

Allstate (Northbrook, Ill.) has implemented a web-based benefits management application from Charleston, S.C.-based Benefitfocus for its voluntary benefits business.

The application consolidates enrollment and management for such lines of business as Group Universal Life, Group Critical Illness, Group Accident and Group Cancer on a single website, rather than multiple sites or paper-based enrollment. Employers can choose to integrate enrollment for voluntary benefits with core benefits enrollment as well.

"Our objective at Allstate is to provide a seamless, unified enrollment experience that allows employers to manage their entire suite of benefits, including the Allstate offerings, in the most efficient and effective manner possible," David A. Bird, president of Allstate Benefits, says in a statement.

The products are underwritten by Allstate subsidiary American Heritage Life (Jacksonville, Fla.)
