While we are a locally owned and independently operated firm headquartered in Santa Barbara, CA we are also a proud Partner-owner of United Benefit Advisors (UBA).

United Benefit Advisors is a Partner-owned alliance of nearly 140 premier independent benefit advisory firms with more than 200 offices throughout the U.S., and is one of the nation’s “Top 10” employee benefit advisory organizations.  UBA Partners, who actively collaborate with more than 2,000 experienced benefits professionals, are uniquely prepared to share their collective wisdom with busy employers who want the assurance that they are making informed choices that improve the lives of their employees and their families

Because UBA is a national organization, Beneflex is able to create unique benefits packages for our clients that have locations in multiple states and can help employers who are relocating or expanding. While UBA lends its firm strength and knowledge, Beneflex is still an independent advisory firm who understands the local marketplace and the unique challenges that individual employers face. This allows us to provide insightful, personalized service that our competition simply can’t match, backed by the knowledge and resources of UBA.
