Liberty Mutual Insurance Group Benefits, the first group life and disability carrier to launch a mobile application to help employees conveniently manage multiple benefits using mobile devices, has extended the functionality of its MyLibertyMobile application to make life easier for new moms.
MyLibertyMobile's Report a Birth now offers a quick, convenient way for new mothers to activate their disability benefits using a smartphone or tablet following the birth of a child, allowing them to concentrate on the new priority in their life.
''We've harnessed technology so our customers' employees can literally tap into their benefits in the hectic days following delivery,'' notes Jean Scarrow, chief operating officer, Liberty Mutual Insurance Group Benefits.''Now, a new mother can complete the necessary steps through her mobile device.''
''Two-thirds of women of childbearing age use a smartphone, according to the Pew Research Center. It only makes sense to apply mobile technology to group disability programs,'' notes Scarrow. ''Mobile technology helps employers drive employee engagement by providing employees with greater convenience and flexibility at key milestones in their lives.''
In addition to the new Report a Birth function, MyLibertyMobile also offers Report Intermittent Absence functionality, which allows employees to enter time away from work during approved leaves with any web-enabled mobile device.
