MADISON, Wis. (08/01/2013) – The employee benefits landscape has been transformed over the last decade, by burgeoning costs, regulatory changes, and new benefits options. During and after the great recession, employers have reduced their benefits budgets and are shifting costs and decision-making to employees. Organizations have also gotten more creative in their efforts to offer competitive benefits that enable them to recruit and retain the best workers.

A new white paper from the CUNA HR/TD Council, "Employee Benefits: The Future is Voluntary" is the second paper in a series about employee benefits, and is a follow-up to 2012's white paper “Credit Union Benefits Programs: Meet Employees’ and Your CU’s Financial Needs.”

The paper focuses on how credit unions are evaluating and incorporating supplemental insurance programs, and includes information about:

  • Options in the marketplace
  • Presenting the business case for a supplemental insurance program
  • The concept of “make or buy”
  • Metrics

CUNA Council members are eligible to receive complimentary copies of this, and over 300 other white papers; non-Council members may purchase white papers for $50 per copy.

The paper is available online in the white paper section of

Press may contact Natalie Sherry at for a copy of the white paper.
