RSS feeds now available at www.manulife.ca/groupbenefits
We’ve added RSS (an acronym for ‘Really Simple Syndication’ or ‘Rich Site Summary’) to the Group Benefits’ newsletters page. By subscribing to receive our RSS feeds, you’ll get the latest news – including our quarterly newsletters – sent directly to your computer or mobile device as soon as the stories are posted.
What is RSS?
RSS is a tool that allows websites to easily distribute noteworthy stories, articles, and other content directly to interested readers. When you subscribe to receive RSS feeds, the stories come straight to you automatically – there’s no need for you to keep returning to the original websites to see what’s new.
How to use RSS
To begin receiving RSS feeds from all your favourite websites, news organizations, sports teams, and group benefits organizations, you’ll need to download a news reader from the Internet or sign-up to use a web-based program. There are many of these available on the Internet at no cost to you. Then, when visiting your favourite news sites, look for the orange RSS icon. Click on the icon, copy the URL, and then paste it into your reader. (To subscribe for Manulife Financial Group Benefits’ RSS feeds, go to www.manulife.ca and click on the “Newsletters” heading under “Group Benefits.”) Once you’ve done that, headlines will begin appearing in your news reader every time a new story is posted or updated.
We’ve created RSS feeds that will be of interest to plan sponsors, plan administrators, and plan members. The feeds are an easy way to get news and information about your group benefits plan faster than ever before.
