What is the Allstate Benefits App?

Allstate Benefits App

Allstate Benefits and Benefitfocus have partnered to provide the Allstate Benefits App through Benefitfocus HR INTOUCH®, a powerful web portal that revolutionizes benefit enrollment, communication and education. During One Place, Greg Guidos, Allstate Benefits President, discussed Allstate's business model and working with Benefitfocus to increase the distribution of their products. Allstate chose Benefitfocus to allow their clients to shop, enroll, manage and exchange their benefits information. As a result, Allstate has been able to double their participation rate.

With just a few clicks, employees can enroll in core benefits like medical and dental, as well as Allstate benefits. The Allstate Benefits App provides employees access to four products:

Instead of filling out a separate form or visiting multiple websites, employees select Allstate benefits on the BENEFITFOCUS® Platform, eliminating the tedious extra steps that can sometimes be obstacles to voluntary benefits participation.

This report is available directly from the employee confirmation screen.
