The Voluntary Benefits Shop
The Voluntary Benefits Shop provides expertise, products, enrollment solutions and support to employee benefits brokers and employers for employee funded benefit programs.
The Voluntary Benefits Shop was formed in 2013 by four partners with a long history in the voluntary benefits business. If you did the thing where you add up the total number of years in the business per partner to illustrate our experience, we have about 80 years of experience. That's a lot!
Before we started the business (originally called Mid-Atlantic Benefits Group) we all worked high level positions for a large quacking carrier. We ran sales, training and market development for several states. That was good, until it wasn't. There were a lot of things we wanted to do differently.
One thing we really liked doing was working with group benefit brokers. They needed help with voluntary benefits. They needed expertise and they needed enrollment services. We decided The Voluntary Benefits Shop was going to be an indispensable resource for brokers to develop their VB business.
We also knew that we wanted our business to be more than a regional concern. That takes a team. We started with more partners than employees, so finding the right people to help us has been a big part of our story.
When we look at all the jobs that, in the early days, were done by a partner but are now done by a person or whole department that specializes in sales, administration, product recommendations, enrollment, call center, case management, new business processing, customer service or special projects, we're very proud of what we've built and of how it continues to grow.
We have a great team! This crew has run benefit enrollments in all 50 states, plus Puerto Rico and Guam! <imagine photos of smiling faces here>
