The Prutection Score helps each organization build the best benefits strategy.

The tool estimates funds available, including current coverage, assets, and income from other sources. It compares this amount to the total funds needed for better protection against the four key risks: premature death, illness/injury, out-of-pocket costs, and outliving assets. Each risk is scored from one to 100, with 100 being the most prepared.

* “Funds and coverage available” is based on an estimate of an employee’s financial assets, spousal or partner income, investment income, Social Security benefits, and insurance benefits, drawing from Prudential survey data and external industry and government sources.

† “Funds and coverage needed” is an estimate based on a variety of survey data such as an employee’s age, marital status, number of children, income, essential monthly expenses (e.g., mortgage, child care), discretionary expenses, and college costs. The figure incorporates realistic assumptions about items such as longevity, inflation, and care-giving costs based on a combination of mortality tables and government and industry data.

 

The Prudential Insurance Company of America (Prudential)

The Prutection Score® is a measure of how prepared a group of employees is for the risks of (1) premature death, (2) loss of income due to an illness or injury, (3) out-of-pocket expenses related to an illness or injury, and (4) outliving assets. For each of these risks, the Prutection Score is the ratio of Funds Available to Funds Needed, which is estimated using employee demographic information, Prudential survey data, and a variety of credible external industry and government sources. While the first three risks take into account actual coverage amounts employees have to help protect them against those risks (e.g., Life, Disability, CI, and Accident Insurance), the Outliving Assets risk does not (e.g., no actual employee retirement assets and deferral rates). The Outliving Assets risk does not evaluate the sufficiency of employer’s or employee’s retirement plans and does not constitute retirement advice. The Prutection Score is not intended to advise you or any of your employees what their specific financial needs might be or the exact amount of coverage any one individual might need now or in the future. The resulting scores are to be used for an entire group of employees or large demographics within a group. Results are not to be used at an individual level. Individuals should contact a financial professional regarding their personal situation. Prudential is not responsible for uses made of this information inconsistent with the description provided here.
