Employee Benefits

WellnessPlansNowlogoEach year healthcare and employee benefit laws get increasingly complex, and it can be difficult to stay on top of all the changing regulations. At Van Popering Insurance (VPI) we understand the importance of having a professional and knowledgeable broker to help you navigate the subtleties and complexities of employee benefit plans. We work with employers of 2 to 2,000 employees to help them design and communicate a plan that is compliant, effective, and affordable, as well as attractive to their employees. This process includes consultative review, employee communication and education, HR compliance, and workplace wellness.

VPI’s experienced brokers come armed with a depth of knowledge and breadth of professional relationships to provide your business with the most cost-effective and customizable benefits available. At VPI, we don’t just broker ‘cookie-cutter solutions’ and send you a renewal notice once a year. We use creativity and innovation to manage your benefits options proactively and develop a plan that’s specific to the needs of your employees.

Our consultative approach to group benefits begins with determining client objectives, resources, and ideas. We then design and execute a plan that incorporates those ideas and ensures client satisfaction.

At VPI, we know that your employees are your business’s most valuable assets. Let us help you secure those assets with creative group benefits plans that reward your current employees and meet your company’s financial objectives.

Comprehensive Advice on Your Employee Benefit Plans

With decades of experience and a long tradition of serving business owners in the Carolinas, we pride ourselves on offering the comprehensive and personalized advice you need to understand your available options. We also offer advice on the changing laws under the ongoing health care reform and can help you understand how these changes impact your business.

Our main goal is to help you choose products that meet your unique needs, but we also make every effort to help you keep costs to a minimum. After all, the lower your premiums, the smaller the impact they have on your bottom line, and ultimately, the financial health of your business. To minimize your rates, we will explore every money-saving option available, including packaging your benefits plan with the rest of your business coverage.

We work with our clients to make employee benefits management a 3-5 year strategic initiative. By defining objectives and developing an action plan to meet those objectives, we ensure an organized, complete approach to fulfilling your benefits needs.
