From Our Clients

The Benefit Works has helped more than 500 clients and with almost 90 years of experience we’ll be sure to deliver what we promise!
“We have about 250 employees and The Benefit Works was able to move us from a platform of benefits for Life, Disability and Voluntary Life we had used for several years and saved us almost $100,000. By analyzing our current benefits package, determining how we were rated through our current association, they determined it was more cost effective for us to purchase our own plan versus through our association.”

“We were unsure of the new ACA reporting requirements for both our employee notices and filing with the federal government. After The Benefit Works interviewed our HR department and reviewed our current practices, they were able to give us a schedule of notices and dates for distribution as well as dates and requirements for filing with CMS and other forthcoming requirements.”

“I am a grocer with under 50 full time employees and many part time seasonal employees. I was unable determine what of the ACA rules applied to us with regard to the “Pay or Play” penalties. The Benefit Works was able to assist us with a large employer calculator and help us determine that we were indeed still a small employer and the ACA “Pay or Play” rules were not applicable to us.”
