- What benefits will you have if you do that?
- I think "get or gain" is better than "have" here, right?

Thanks a lot!

    Hi namlan,
    You can use the word "benefits" to mean advantages or rewards or improvements (etc.) to be obtained from performing a certain action.

    "Benefits" can also refer to insurance coverage that provides for health or dental procedures. Employers commonly provide a "benefits package" for their employees.

    One could ask, "If I enroll in option two of the Kaiser HMO, what benefits will I have?" The answer might be, "You will have coverage for all your dental care up to a yearly maximum of $3000."

    Or you might "gain" strength by doing certain exercises.

    The word you use is probably best determined after considering the complete context.

    Hope that helps,
    Blues :)
