Employee benefits play an important role in the lives of your employees, and are also an important part of the employers’ business plan. Employee benefit plans may consist of a number of components, including health, retirement, life and disability insurance. Companies have the flexibility to offer all or a combination of some of these benefits to their employees.
Our Employee Benefits Department specializes in the development of innovative benefit solutions that are responsive to your company's needs to balance the overall cost to the business with the desire to offer a benefit package that provides real value to the employee.
Our highly trained and experienced professional staff is well versed in the complex and ever-changing area of group health benefits. We are committed to providing our customers with innovative and cost effective solutions for their health and group benefit needs. We utilize a number of funding strategies including fully insured, partially self-funded, fully self-funded, and defined contribution.
There are a number of group health benefit options available to employers, and every option varies widely in terms of coverage and cost. With the fluid state of health care today, it is difficult for businesses to stay informed and up-to-date on available coverage options and new compliance requirements.
Our Employee Benefits Department provides expert benefits counsel to businesses and works closely with our customers to develop and implement comprehensive group health solutions that are also cost effective.
We partner with you to make the process of offering benefits less stressful on your human resources department. You can count on our employee benefit professionals to work with you throughout the year to help administer and service your benefits program – from start-up to renewal and everything in between. We can also help simplify the application process for your employees through the utilization of FormFire and other enrollment software programs.

Ancillary benefits are health benefits offered by employers in addition to a standard health plan. These benefits can be either employer funded or offered on a voluntary basis (employee pays for coverage). Examples of ancillary benefits include dental, vision and life/AD&D insurance. These benefits can be a very important part of a company’s group benefits package.
Even if your company has been working toward decreasing costs and limiting spending, offering ancillary benefits to employees can be very affordable, and can go a long way toward promoting a healthy and productive staff. The cost of ancillary benefits can be fully covered by the employer or the employer can choose to share the cost with the employees.
Our Employee Benefits Department will conduct a full and comprehensive review of your current benefit plan to determine how your benefit program can be made more cost effective yet continue to provide value to your employees.
