Get more out of your benefits investment

Choosing a benefit plan can be confusing and overwhelming. You want a plan that can attract and retain top talent, but not at the expense of your bottom line. Our team of experts will help you design and administer your plan, ensure you’re not leaving money on the table, and make sure your staff get the benefit support they need.

We’ll help reduce your overall benefit spend, reduce/eliminate the administrative burdens associated with delivering a comprehensive benefit package, and ensure compliance with federal, state, and local regulations. We do so by working side by side with you, communicating frequently, so that you make the best decisions for your staff and bottom line.

Furthermore, our group benefit advisors are loyal to you and your organization, not the insurance companies and vendors. We’ll help you develop the perfect plan for your organization and work with you to ensure the plans continue to balance cost, administration, compliance, and employee satisfaction. When you partner with us, we’ve got you covered. We’ll help you balance cost, administration, and compliance.

Our clients say

Plante Moran Group Benefit Advisors (PMGBA) functions and serves as a seamless extension of our team at 5-hour Energy.

With a professional working relationship of over seven years, PMGBA has become a trusted advisor and problem solver for us. Prior to engaging PMGBA we lacked the transparency to fully understand the pricing and didn’t receive the same level of personalized care. More importantly, benefit costs were going up 15-20% each year. The Plante Moran team helped us transition to a self-insurance plan which allowed us to maintain a flat premium in the last few years without reducing any of our premium-level benefits to our staff.

We value the cost-saving capabilities and transparency PMGBA brings to the table. They simply offer so much information and knowledge within the group benefit and insurance services space. Whether your company is small or large, we highly recommend the Plante Moran team to help you find the best benefits for the lowest cost.

Take it from our Plante Moran Group Benefit Advisor (PMGBA) president Ed Murphy: “We’ve been in the business a long time, so we know what causes companies to take a wrong turn and how to create a unique plan to address and fix the problem(s).
