What are Group Benefits?
By definition, Group Benefits are insurance options that cover all eligible members of a pre-defined group, such as all the employees in an organization. Employee insurance benefits often include medical coverage for employees or their dependents, either directly or through insurance, reimbursement, or other methods.
While group insurance for employees is primarily paid for by an employer, it is not unusual for employees to contribute. Typically, employees will dedicate a small percentage of their salary to paying the company’s monthly premium.
Finding the appropriate coverage to suit your needs can be tedious. You often end up paying higher premiums for insurance that covers areas that government health plans do not. However, with a group benefits plan, the premiums are lower and provide equivalent coverage to individual health insurance.
Small Business benefits (Less than 51 employees)
As a small business owner, you will face a series of unique challenges every day. These challenges evolve as your business grows and establishes itself. Our small business solutions can help you whether you need a straightforward plan that’s easy for your employees to use and understand or if you seek a more comprehensive selection of benefits products and services with greater flexibility for your company.
We assist business owners with everything from managing business costs to attracting the best employees and growing personal wealth. Our group benefits programs for small businesses are affordable and can be tailored to meet your company’s specific needs. A benefits program will give your firm a competitive advantage in the job market as a cost-effective method to protect employees and their families with a tax-effective form of compensation.

NIS Advisors are conscious of the influence of union and management negotiations on benefit plans. As a result, we will do all we can to support the negotiation process, including accommodating those discussions through our rating actions and the timing of rate adjustments. We will also work closely with third-party administrators on day-to-day service issues such as claims eligibility and premium administration.
