Health Insurance Benefits

Health insurance is one of the most important benefits gained by working aside from base pay. Healthcare can be so expensive -- even basic doctor bills can eat up a working family's paycheck, to say nothing of the bankruptcies caused by medical disasters -- that it often is just as important as your salary.

ERISA governs the health benefits available to seniors. Click on the articles below to learn more.
