For most business owners, your company is your largest asset. Let us be your partner and your advocate. We’re ready to guide you on your journey, with advice at every stage of the business lifecycle, offering you the peace of mind you need and deserve.

Here are some of the solutions we can customize for your company:

Insurance Solutions for Businesses

Employee Benefits Management & Consulting

Managing benefits is key to retaining good talent, but it also can be a difficult and complex process. That’s why we oversee a wide array of group-related employee health benefits portfolios for companies. This includes medical, dental, short- and long-term disability, vision, life, HR-benefit administration systems, flexible spending accounts, claim analysis, and disease-management programs.

We can either become an extension of your Human Resources Department or serve as your “Sub-HR’ partner. We build a long-term plan with your company so you can achieve your goals and be prepared for the future.

  • HR Placements
  • Group Benefit Plans, Designs, Management (Health, Dental, Life, Disability)
  • Fully Insured, Level, & Self-Funded Plans, Reference-Based Pricing, Captives

Executive Carve Out Plans

We will carve out programs for a special chosen group of employees, partners, or executives. These programs may include Life Insurance, Specialized Disability, and other custom plans. We can help you weigh the costs and benefits of Carve Out Plans, including providing irreplaceable employees with a valuable piece of compensation that encourages them to stay in their jobs for the long term.

  • Life, Disability, Medicare, Long-Term Care plans

Key Executive Protection Plans

Every person is important in a business—but some are essential. We help you with your insurance needs to protect your company if key employees become sick, disabled, or pass away.

Discover the best ways to attract and retain employees, reward key executives, and fund severance packages and other benefit plans.

  • Keyman Life or Disability Insurance Plans
  • Split Dollar Plans

Business Succession and Sustainability Plans

We can protect your assets from a tragic or life-changing event. If your business partner dies, what is your plan? Many partners are not properly set up in their ownership, operating and distribution agreements. Stock buyouts are often muddy, and the time to figure out your valuation process and all the rest is not at the time of sickness, disability, or retirement.

If you set up an operation agreement five years ago when the company was worth only $250,000—but today is worth $5 million—did you remember to reevaluate your agreement and address the company growth?

Obviously, you cannot do this once and then call it a day. These are things we look for so that you are protected. We think of the issues you are too busy to think about. We provide workable solutions for a myriad of situations.
