AGA Assistance

Employee assistance program

A NEW PARADIGM IN THE INSURER-CLIENT RELATIONSHIP

AGA Benefit Solutions believes that a comprehensive and accessible employee assistance program, used to its full potential, greatly enhances the quality of life of employees and their families, while benefiting employers in the process. To ensure our clients get the best product, in response to society’s changing needs, we have developed Assistance AGA, our employee assistance program based on four findings:

  1. The concept of “business hours” is out of date. Insured members must be able to get answers to their questions at any time.
  2. Technology simplifies our lives, but nothing equals human contact when a difficult situation requires prompt professional intervention.
  3. Mental health is as important as physical health. Both help reduce absenteeism at work.
  4. Everyday situations requiring legal advice are becoming more frequent.

IDENTITY THEFT ASSISTANCE

Identity theft is becoming increasingly common. We can teach your employees how to keep their personal information safe. If they do become a victim of identity theft, we will help them re-establish their identity quickly and prevent similar situations in the future.

REGISTRATION OF IMPORTANT DOCUMENTS

Your employees can achieve peace of mind by registering their credit card and passport numbers and other important documents via encrypted email. If their documents are lost or stolen, we will be there to help them 24/7. We will immediately contact the institutions involved to prevent fraudulent use of their documents. This is a highly safe and reassuring process!

DISABILITY CLAIM ASSISTANCE

Should employees experience a serious setback (accident, critical illness, etc.), a professional will guide them through the disability benefit claim process: filling out the appropriate forms, making sure the information sent to the insurer is accurate, and doing the necessary follow-up until they are ready to return to work. Thus, they can focus on their recovery without undue stress.
