Our clients say

Plante Moran Group Benefit Advisors is an invaluable asset to our organization. We are a two-person department, and without their day-to-day support we would not be able to efficiently manage our operations and finance departments. Moreover, they have helped us reduce our overall costs and identified several errors from our previous group administers, which has helped our bottom line tremendously.

Overall, they have become our “watch dogs” to ensure we remain in compliant with ACA and other regulatory areas. They truly represent our organization and we have the utmost confidence in the work they do for our group.

We never want to work with anyone else but Plante Moran Group Benefit Advisors, and would recommend their team to anyone in need of group benefit and insurance services.
