Our value proposition for employers lies in our four core fundamental principles:
Flexibility — We won’t attempt to “fit you in” to a pre-designed benefit plan or package; but rather our consultative approach will customize an employee benefit solution that fits you and your people.
Independence — Alliance Benefit Group® is not owned by an insurance company, bank, mutual fund company, or investment brokerage house. We have no proprietary products that we are charged to “sell” you. We are employee benefits consultants and administrators who work for YOU.
Fee Transparency — Compensation for our services will not be hidden, it will not be “under the table,” or even “in the shadows.” Fees for our services will be completely disclosed to you so that you can fulfill your ERISA legal responsibility of monitoring the fees and expenses of your employee benefits service providers.
Service — Our service will not be delivered exclusively over an 800 phone number or website. Our goal is to become a trusted advisor or partner to both you and your employees, for we believe that this is the highest level of client relationship achievable. Trust, accountability, mutual support, truth, and effort are the crucial elements that foster a strong, long-term relationship.
Alliance Benefit Group LLC was formed by four regional employee benefit consulting / administration firms in 1991. Our founding principle was the formation of a national entity that would enable us to provide innovative / cost-effective employee benefit solutions for the small- to medium-size employer – competing with the national players, yet emphasizing the “relationship” aspect of this sale and capitalizing on…
Our collective size.
Collective development of innovative products and services.
The economies-of-scale of group buying power.
The building of a national brand.
Since then Alliance Benefit Group® has grown to include 17 office locations; currently providing services to over 20,000 plans representing over 1.2 million plan participants and over $70 billion in assets.
