National Employee Benefits Day - Changes Annually
(Last Updated On: January 30, 2023)


National Employee Benefits Day takes place in April each year and recognizes the administrators, personnel, trustees, and advisors who dedicate their services to providing the best benefits packages possible.

These teams make sure employees have available a wide variety of benefits. From enhanced tools to packages full of financial planning and health care services, they guide employers and employees through their benefits. It’s an excellent time to evaluate the value of your benefits package and consider how you’ve maximized every resource available.

The day provides many resources for benefits professionals to explore the tools and packages available to employees and employers. It’s also an opportunity to remain informed about the needs of a variety of employers in a changing world. From short to long-term disability, wellness and nutrition, mental wellness and mindfulness, healthcare, and more, the Employee Benefits Day helps these specialists pinpoint areas of service need.
