Lincoln Financial partners with Swiss Life network

Lincoln Financial Group (LNC) announced it has entered into a complementary partnership with Swiss Life Global Solutions (Swiss Life Network), a leading global employee benefits provider. Through this partnership, both companies now have the ability to meet the needs of employers with a multinational employee base, ensuring they have access to quality benefits.

As the U.S. carrier partner to Swiss Life Network, Lincoln Financial brings insights and customer-centric benefits solutions including disability, leave, life, dental, accident and critical illness coverage for U.S.-based employees. Through this partnership, Lincoln Financial will extend cost-effective coverage for its customers with employees outside the U.S. through Swiss Life Network.

“Our customers are always at the center of everything we do, and our partnership with Swiss Life Network brings value to those we serve who have a diverse geographic footprint, and provides an opportunity to expand coverage to new U.S. customers while strengthening our partnerships. While Lincoln’s focus continues to be writing U.S. domestic business, with Swiss Life Network we have access to a new lead source for all product lines to write coverage for U.S.-based employers of all sizes.”- Eric Reisenwitz, senior vice president, interim president of Lincoln Financial’s group benefits business.

Swiss Life Network has an international association of more than 90 local life insurers globally, with long-standing partner and client relationships and retention.

“We are proud to partner with Lincoln as our exclusive U.S. group benefits carrier, because of its commitment to serving its customers, as well as the breadth of offerings and commitment to deliver quality solutions. We are extremely excited about this complementary partnership, the growth opportunities it provides and the ability to expand our network for U.S. employees by offering a partner solution to our multinational clients.” – Michael Hansen, chief executive officer of Swiss Life Network.

Customers will have access to a network with broad product offerings and solutions to support employees in 94 countries and territories. Regional brokers or consultant partners working with Lincoln Financial or Swiss Life Network will be able to easily provide customers with access to global coverage options, as well as a streamlined approach to provide multinational coverage.
