Here are a few things I have noticed and grown to appreciate over the 8 years we have been dealing with you…
The service is always prompt, comprehensive, personal and cheerful.
While we are a micro business with a small staff complement, in dealing with you, I’ve never felt like we were a “small” account.

We are a small company… can we afford a Group Benefits Plan?
The simple answer to this question is YES. There are options available to every employer, which can be tailored to both their needs and their budget. Exploring options and costs is the first step to ensuring the health and well being of both owners and employees.
What expenses can I claim under my Group Benefits Plan, my Health Care Spending Account or my Cost Plus Account?

When must an employee enroll into the company’s Group Benefits Plan?
All employees meeting plan eligibility, as outlined under your plan (ie. actively working X hours per week, after X months of employment) must be enrolled in a group plan within 30 days of eligibility. An employee can choose to waive health and/or dental coverage only if he/she has coverage under a spousal plan, but must be enrolled within 30 days of eligibility for all other benefits.
