The Hartford Adds Employee Benefits, E&S Options to Small Business Online Quote System

February 5, 2018

The Hartford has enhanced ICON, its online quoting system for agents and brokers, to include access to quote employee benefits as well as excess and surplus (E&S) coverage for their small business customers.

Employee benefits are now integrated with the workers’ compensation quoting ICON system. When an agent or broker generates a workers’ compensation quote for a small business, they will see the option to receive a bindable proposal for group benefits coverage in real-time without entering any additional information.

Employee benefits products available to quote in ICON include:

  • Group life insurance
  • Long-term disability insurance; and
  • Business travel accident insurance.

Agents placing and servicing E&S business can also now submit both admitted and non-admitted products through ICON. Agents who are placing an admitted product through ICON can access a range of non-admitted property and general liability coverage with improved quote turn-around times, a combined bill with multiple payment options and a streamlined renewal process for all coverages.

This new business model, E&S Advantage, has been rolled out to select retail agents, with plans to expand the offering to more agents throughout the year.
