Voluntary Benefits

A Comprehensive Family of Voluntary Offerings

Grainger’s voluntary benefits offer an added level of financial security for team members. The first step in choosing the right benefits is understanding the importance of each option. Your participation is strictly voluntary, and you pay 100% of the cost of these programs.

Hospital Indemnity Insurance

Hospital visits and stays are costly and often unexpected. If you are suddenly out of work, you may have trouble meeting household expenses such as your mortgage and car payment, on top of any medical expenses that you are obligated to cover like deductibles, copays and out-of-network care or treatments. With Hospital Indemnity Insurance, you receive a lump-sum payment to help cover costs that result from hospitalization.

You may start or terminate this coverage as a new hire or during Open Enrollment.

Accident Insurance

Accidents happen frequently and can be very costly. Even the best medical plans may leave you with extra out-of-pocket expenses. Accident Insurance can help you be better prepared. There are over 150 covered conditions associated with an accident that could trigger benefits, including injuries, hospitalization, medical services and treatments.
