Booking a Cruise in 2023? Travel Insurance Tips for Wave Season

NEW YORK, N.Y. -- Wave season is officially here. For those new to cruising, wave season is the prime booking period for cruises, usually from January to March, when cruise lines offer excellent discounts and incentives. But with great deals comes great responsibility. Today, is urging travelers to protect their purchases with a cruise travel insurance plan.

"Embarking on a cruise can be one of the most exciting travel experiences for an individual, a couple or even a family," said Stan Sandberg, co-founder of "However, planning a cruise vacation comes with special considerations. The potential of a missed connection en route to the departure port, severe weather, or even on-board medical issues can sink a vacation rather quickly."

When searching for travel insurance, it's important to look into cruise-specific insurance. While cruise insurance and your standard travel insurance policies may seem similar, they differ in several ways. Cruise travel insurance policies offer more customized and comprehensive coverage options designed to cover events and situations that are specific to cruises. This coverage may include missed port departures, cabin confinement due to illness, and trip cancellations due to inclement weather or other reasons. offers plans which can cover all of the costs of a cruise vacation, including airfare, hotels, and the cruise itself. However, it's important to keep in mind that the exact type of insurance offered can vary depending on the cruise line, but here are some ways travel insurance can protect cruise ship vacationers:

* Trip Cancellation and Interruption Insurance: This coverage offers reimbursement for non-refundable expenses if you must cancel or interrupt your trip due to a covered reason, such as illness or a death in the family.

* Medical and Dental Insurance: This coverage can provide reimbursement for emergency medical and dental expenses incurred during your trip.

* Baggage and Personal Effects Insurance: This coverage can provide reimbursement for lost, damaged or stolen baggage and personal items during your trip.

* Emergency Evacuation and Repatriation Insurance: This coverage can cover the cost of medical transportation if you need to be evacuated due to an emergency or medical situation.

"Most cruise companies will offer a single travel insurance policy choice to their customers but it's important to note that the level of coverage and protection offered can vary widely, so always review the details of the policy before buying," Sandberg continues. " makes it easy to compare and buy cruise insurance policies and rates from multiple companies, and in many cases, travelers can find better coverage at lower prices than offered to them at the cruise point of booking."

Whether it's your first or your tenth cruise, travel insurance can help you focus on the fun and enjoyment of your vacation, rather than what might go wrong.

Strategic Benefits Advisors offers guidance for plan sponsors as they seek to comply with landmark SECURE 2.0 retirement legislation

ATLANTA, Ga. -- Independent, full-service employee benefits consulting firm Strategic Benefits Advisors, Inc. (SBA) issued a statement today outlining provisions of the newly enacted SECURE 2.0 Act of 2022 (SECURE 2.0) that are likely to affect most medium to large retirement plan sponsors.

"Employers are still getting their arms around the scope of change represented by SECURE 2.0," said SBA Principal Andy Adams. "We've created an outline that trims the Senate Finance Committee summary down to those provisions most relevant to defined contribution plans without taking all the meat off the bones. Our goal is to give plan sponsors an approachable entry point for understanding where the rubber meets the road."

Hailed as landmark retirement reform, SECURE 2.0 builds on the SECURE Act of 2019 to enhance the long-term financial security of millions of Americans by providing wider access to retirement savings. President Biden signed SECURE 2.0 into law on December 29, 2022, as part of a $1.7 trillion omnibus spending bill that also includes funds for national defense, medical research, safety, veteran health care and disaster recovery.

While most provisions within the 358-page SECURE 2.0 package apply to plan years beginning January 1, 2024, or later, certain provisions apply for the 2023 plan year. According to Adams and fellow SBA Principal Lynn Bullard, SECURE 2.0 provisions that will affect a majority of large and mid-sized defined contribution (DC) plan sponsors can be summarized as follows.

Mandatory changes to required minimum distribution (RMD) rules:

* Effective December 29, 2022, expands the amount that can be excluded from RMD rules if used to purchase qualified longevity annuity contracts.

* Effective January 1, 2023, raises the RMD age (the age at which participants must begin withdrawing from their retirement accounts) from 72 to 73, with a subsequent increase to 75 effective January 1, 2033.

* Effective January 1, 2023, reduces the individual tax penalty for failure to take the RMD.

* Effective January 1, 2023, provides more flexibility in the allowable timing, amounts and features of life annuities to satisfy RMD requirements by removing an existing actuarial test.

* Effective January 1, 2024, allows the surviving spouse of a participant who dies before commencing RMDs to elect to be treated as the employee for RMD purposes.

* Effective January 1, 2024, eliminates RMD requirements on Roth accounts prior to a participant's death.

Other changes to retirement plan distributions:

* Effective for federally declared disasters occurring on or after January 26, 2021, provides permanent rules related to the permitted use of retirement funds by affected individuals including penalty-free withdrawals of up to $22,000, taxation over three years, repayment provisions and special loan considerations.

* Effective December 29, 2022, eliminates the 10% early withdrawal penalty on distributions to terminally ill participants.

* Effective December 29, 2022, limits the repayment period for distributions taken for qualified birth or adoption expenses to three years.

* Effective January 1, 2023, permits employers to rely on employee self-certification of an event that constitutes a hardship.

* Effective January 1, 2024, eliminates the 10% early withdrawal penalty on amounts up to $1,000 in a year for personal or family emergencies. No other such emergency distribution may be made within three years unless the initial distribution is repaid.

* Effective January 1, 2024, creates a new, penalty-free withdrawal for victims of domestic abuse. Income taxes will be refunded to the participant for distributions repaid within three years.

* Effective January 1, 2024, increases the mandatory distribution cap to $7,000 (formerly $5,000).

* Effective December 29, 2025, permits distributions of up to $2,500 to pay for long-term care insurance premiums with no early withdrawal penalty.

Additional operational changes:

* Effective December 29, 2022, allows employers to give DC plan participants the option to receive employer matching contributions on a Roth (after-tax) basis.

* Effective January 1, 2023, allows employers to offer de minimis, immediate financial incentives (such as gift cards) to encourage employees to join retirement plans.

* Effective January 1, 2023, limits the types of plan disclosures required to those who have not elected to participate.

* Effective January 1, 2024, requires that all catch-up contributions to qualified retirement plans by highly paid participants be made on a Roth (after-tax) basis.

* Effective January 1, 2024, allows employers to offer individuals the option to pay down a student loan instead of contributing to a 401(k) plan and still receive an employer match in their retirement plan. Plan sponsors may conduct separate non-discrimination testing for these individuals.

* Effective January 1, 2024, allows plan sponsors to offer non-highly compensated employees an emergency savings account. Employers may auto-enroll employees at no more than 3% of compensation. Contributions are capped at $2,500, after which time contributions must be stopped or directed to an employee's Roth IRA until the balance falls below the cap.

* Effective January 1, 2024, modifies top-heavy testing so that a plan sponsor may test non-excludable and excludable employees separately.

* Effective December 29, 2023, allows plan providers to offer the ability to automatically deposit a participant's default IRA from a previous employer into a new employer's qualified plan.

* Instructs the Department of Labor to issue new guidance by December 29, 2024, on benchmarking target date funds against appropriate indices.

* Instructs the Department of Labor to create a central data repository (the 'Retirement Savings Lost and Found') by December 29, 2024, for participants to search for their plan administrator's contact information.

* Effective January 1, 2025, requires new 401(k) and 403(b) plans to automatically enroll employees unless they specifically opt out.

* Effective January 1, 2025, creates new, higher catch-up contribution limits for those ages 60 through 63 who participate in employer-sponsored retirement plans.

* Effective January 1, 2025, requires plan sponsors to allow part-time employees who work at least 500 hours a year for two consecutive years (not three years, as under current law) to participate in company 401(k) plans.

* Effective January 1, 2026, requires plan sponsors to provide participants with at least one paper account statement per year, unless the participant elects otherwise.

Updates to plan correction methods:

* Effective December 29, 2022, expands the IRS' Employee Plans Compliance Resolution System (EPCRS) by allowing more errors to be corrected through self-correction, extending applicability to inadvertent IRA errors and exempting certain RMD failures from excise taxes.

* Effective December 29, 2022, limits the degree to which plans may seek to recoup excess retirement plan payments from participants and gives plan sponsors the ability to choose not to recoup overpayments.

* Effective January 1, 2024, allows for correction of reasonable errors in administration of automatic enrollment and automatic escalation within 91/2 months after the end of the plan year in which the mistakes occurred (alleviating concern over the existing safe harbor correction method under EPCRS that expires December 31, 2023).

This list is not exhaustive. The full text of SECURE 2.0, including provisions that affect pension and cash-balance plans, may be found on pages 2046-2404 of the omnibus Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2023.

The Senate Financial Committee's 19-page summary of SECURE 2.0 may be found here (PDF):

"For retirement plan sponsors, the question is not whether SECURE 2.0 impacts them, it's which of the more than 90 provisions apply to them and when do they take effect," said Bullard. "Determining the portions of the law relevant to each plan's unique situation is the first step in building a comprehensive plan of action that will keep employers in compliance with minimal disruption to participants and administrative teams."

For help bringing your plan into compliance with SECURE 2.0, talk to your SBA consultant or email to connect with SBA's experienced team of actuaries, consultants and systems specialists.

Alliance Group Launches Living Benefits Awareness Month 2023 with Theme: GoFundYourself

LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. -- Alliance Group launched their sixth annual Living Benefits Awareness Month, or LBAM, to be observed throughout the month of January 2023. The industry-wide campaign, which takes place each January, aims to educate consumers on the importance of owning Living Benefits life insurance and the role it plays in protecting families' financial security.

Living Benefits are features built into life insurance policies (term and permanent) that allow the policyholder access to their death benefit while they're still alive if they get sick or injured. Cancer, heart attack, stroke, major organ transplant, blindness, paralysis, and chronic illness are some of the triggering events that would allow for acceleration of the policy's death benefit.

"Getting sick no longer means certain death," says Samuel Howe, CMO of Alliance Group. "People are surviving longer, which is great news, but survival requires treatment, and treatment requires money. Having emergency access to your life insurance policy's death benefit while you're still alive is a hugely valuable option to have."

He adds, "More people should know about that option. That's why we created Living Benefits Awareness Month six years ago, and we're so excited about building on that success in 2023."

2023 LBAM Theme: GoFundYourself

Each January, Living Benefits Awareness Month is punctuated with a new theme, and this year's theme is "GoFundYourself."

"To illustrate the importance of owning Living Benefits, we are looking to raise awareness about the dangers of relying on GoFundMe as a safety net if something goes sideways with your health," said Howe. "It's wonderful that GoFundMe empowers us to help those in need, but the statistics show that it's not a reliable backup plan.

"Only 12% of GoFundMe campaigns started reach their funding goals. Actually, a larger portion - 16% - fail to get a single donation. This year, we're spreading the message that consumers should plan ahead and get a Living Benefits plan in place that will negate the need to rely on charity in the event of an unexpected illness."

According to Howe, consumers can get a better idea of what LBAM is all about by visiting the website geared towards educating the general public on Living Benefits.

Docsnap Partners with FlexCare Digital Health to Expand Services to Members, Families, Employers, Veterans, Medicare, and Medicaid Patients

ATLANTA, Ga. -- Docsnap, the first nationwide Consumer Health Utility, supports consumers leveraging their HIPAA rights to take ownership of all their medical records. Docsnap announced today its partnership with FlexCare Digital Health to expand access to quality healthcare services for members, families, employees, veterans, Medicare, and Medicaid Patient services.

"Docsnap is excited to welcome FlexCare Digital Health to our partnership family, filling a vital need for our members. As the founder of docsnap and the father of a daughter with a chronic health issue, having access to virtual care visits when it's needed and not when you are told you can have it is critical for the reduction of pain and suffering, stress and anxiety, and the high cost of avoidable urgent care and emergency room visits," said founder Dr. Anthony Mari.

According to UnitedHealth Group research, two-thirds of hospital ED visits annually by individuals in the United States - 18 million out of 27 million - are avoidable. By docsnap and FlexCare providing access 24/7 to compensate for the nation's shortage of Primary Care providers, docsnap provides members "peace-of-mind," knowing they have access to advice about urgent and emergent care when they need it!

"FlexCare is excited to partner with docsnap in providing virtual care services for their Consumer Health Utility," said Principal Lee Shoemake. "We view this as a tremendous opportunity to provide a valuable benefit to millions of docsnap members."

A virtual consult by a licensed physician or dentist from the comfort and convenience of a computer or mobile device can help members get the care they need when they need it.

FlexCare is committed to fulfilling this important member benefit, which will not only assist with providing on demand care, but it will also close the gap of availability to digital health providers.
