Benefits for retirees

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

I worked at Avon Products

Pros

At least they did a bridge when health insurance went away for my mother.

Cons

At almost 91, when they cancelled the $10,000 life insurance benefit it is now so costly to purchase life insurance - thru their deal with MetLife it is $313 a month!! What a deal!

Advice to Management

The cost to you to maintain this "benefit" for the older retirees would be minimal compared to their loss of confidence in a company they loved!! Most of these women thought of this as a "burial policy" and it is now impossible for them to maintain it on a pension of less than $500 a month.
