Experts in the voluntary field share predictions for the coming year — and some pretty crazy products that can now be sold through payroll deduction. Comments compiled at SourceMedia’s Workplace Benefits Transitions conference in Chicago Dec. 10-12

Not only today, but going into the future, it’s going to present a lot of great opportunities for us,” said Charlie Grim, sales manager at The BenefitSource in Elmhurst, Ill. While conference co-chair Walter Podgurski noted that Gil Lowerre, president of Eastbridge Consulting and leading expert in voluntary research, has predicted that 2014 will once again be a banner year for the products with health reform fully in place.
