Offering the most comprehensive group of insurance & benefits out there.
As a ‘true’ brokerage, we’ve scoured the providers to offer you only the most cost efficent, most effective insurance and group benefits products we can find. We aren’t going to offer a solution we wouldn’t first take on for ourselves. For a little more about what we do, click on the product from the list below:
Chambers of Commerce Group Insurance Plan – #1 in Group Benefits for firms with 1-50 people.
Especially designed for smaller firms who normally would not be able to justify the expense of a regular employee benefits package. This is a pooled plan so your firm is “pooled” with hundreds of other small firms – which translates into annual renewal rates of only 3-5% premiums increase – it’s not based on how much usage your single firm makes of the plan.
Group Insurance / Employee Benefit Plans – for larger (35+) firms
We also handle a variety of other group plans for bigger firms and, being a broker, can shop for the best plan to suit your needs.
Group Health Spending Accounts also available
Covers normal reimbursements for health, dental and wellness expenses at lower cost than grouped benefits. There are no premiums as it is not an “insurance plan.” It is funded by the employer and only when a claim’s submitted; it covers expenses up to the limits the business owner assigns.
provides a payout to beneficiaries with the life insured(s) die. This type of life insurance offers coverage with permanent life insurance protection & access to cash values that grow tax-deferred at competitive interest rates. It allows for increase/decrease in coverage as insurance needs change; ability to control amount and frequency of payments; option to increase premium or make lump sum contributions; the extra dollars grow tax-deferred and may increase the cash & death benefit values.
see Universal Life insurance
Life insurance covering a specific time period (i.e., 1-10 years). High face values are available at very low prices. Once the policy is issued it is guaranteed renewable every year with no additional medical underwriting though the premium will increase slightly each time you renew the policy (these increases do become steeper as you get older). May be a good choice if you need insurance for a limited time period—say to cover a major loan or a complicated business transaction or are involved in a dangerous but temporary occupation.
Life Insurance policy maintained by a company on the life of an important partner or employee. It provides funds to offset the economic impact to the company of losing such an employee either by death or extended illness. It can provide money to keep the business running, keep credit channels open, and help the family of the key person for a reasonable period of time to replace lost income.
A lump-sum payment in the event of the diagnoses of a life-threatening illness (specific illnesses covered depend on your policy) to offset day-to-day cost. It can help pay medical costs, transportation to treatment, personal care, convalescence or any other debts you may face. This is different than a disability policy which replaces lost income weekly or monthly when you cannot work.
(or Weekly Indemnity, WI, in insurance-speak) pays out weekly, depending on your salary level, for a limited time following an accident, injury or illness that prevents you from working.
Pays out monthly, depending on your salary level and usually kicks in 121 days or more after you’re off work (it can extend until age 65 depending on your policy). Non-group
Disability (individual) is also available
As with all disability, your insurability depends on your occupation, age, actual income and general health. The best time to apply for this type of coverage is when you’re young and healthy.
