Eastbridge publishes three types of reports: Spotlight™ Reports, Frontline™ Reports, and Sales Reports

Spotlight™ Reports

These reports provide carriers and other insurance professionals with up-to-date, market-sensitive information — on a targeted and cost-effective basis — that can be used to build, refine, or even confirm their business strategies. Approximately 12–15 Spotlight™ Reports are published each year, and we currently have more than 40 studies available covering virtually every voluntary/worksite topic.

Eastbridge’s latest Spotlight™ Reports include:

  • Voluntary Benefits in the Large Case Market
    The objective of this report is to help carriers determine if this is a market they should pursue and/or how to compete effectively.
  • Voluntary Term Life Products
    This report provides a general overview of the voluntary term life market and then examines, in detail, the voluntary term products of 22 carriers active in the market.
  • Voluntary and the Small Case Market
    This report analyzes the results and opportunities for selling voluntary benefits in the small employer market.

  • MarketVision™—The Employer Viewpoint
    This report examines the attitudes and opinions of over 900 employers regarding benefits in general, as well as towards voluntary products. The report also looks at the reasons some employers choose not to offer voluntary products to employees.

  • Voluntary Rep Compensation
    This report examines the compensation practices of voluntary reps for 19 of the top voluntary/worksite marketing carriers.

Frontline™ Reports

Eastbridge Frontline™ Reports provide timely data on new or breaking topics. Because the facts are often still emerging or are in transition, Frontline™ Reports are brief summaries of the facts as they were when the data was collected. These reports are not available for purchase. In fact, the only way you can get a copy of these valuable reports is by being a member of one of Eastbridge's Information Partner™ programs or by participating in the survey itself. Eastbridge completes approximately four Frontline™ Reports per year.

Samples of Eastbridge Frontline™ Reports include:

  • Data Analytics and Voluntary
  • Voluntary Wellness Benefits
  • Voluntary Product Development Processes
  • Voluntary Product Trends
  • Voluntary Lapse Rates
  • Voluntary/Worksite Marketing: An Executive Perspective
  • Social Media and Voluntary

Sales Reports

Eastbridge Sales Reports have become the “gold standard” for the voluntary industry. We have more companies participating in these reports and track more data than any other Sales Report for the industry. All carriers involved in the voluntary/worksite business are eligible to participate in the sales reports, and only participants receive a report of the survey findings. Surveys are distributed at the end of January each year.

Eastbridge’s latest Sales Reports include:

U.S. Voluntary/Worksite Sales Report — This report has been published annually since 1999 and includes data from over 60 carriers on voluntary sales overall, by product line, by filing platform, and by distribution/broker segment. We also monitor takeover rates and sales by case size.

U.S. State EPI and ESI Data — This report is an extension of the annual Sales Report. It includes state-by-state sales and inforce data and provides two measures that relate these data to the number of employed Americans in each state.
