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 over 130 premier independent benefit advisory firms with more than 200 offices throughout the U.S., Canada and the United Kingdom. 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.

While UBA lends its firm strength and knowledge, Beneflex is an independent advisory firm. As a local firm we understand 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. Though we remain independent, as a UBA Partner Firm we join together in a network of information-sharing, allowing us to tap into the experiences of more than 2,000 benefit professionals. By gaining knowledge and resources from our colleagues across the country, allows Beneflex to find sophisticated, cost-effective solutions that are equal or better than those from large brokerage firms, while continuing to offer the personal service that only an independent advisor can deliver. We regularly feature the innovative solutions and expertise of our unique Partners.

Through this partnership we have access to the UBA Health Plan Survey. This Survey is the nation’s largest and most comprehensive benchmarking survey of plan design and cost — 2.5 times larger than the next three of the nation’s largest surveys combined! The resulting volume of data provides employers of all sizes more detailed — and therefore more meaningful — regional, industry, and employee size differentials. This gives employers a distinct competitive edge in recruiting and retaining a superior workforce and managing health care costs. 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.

Navigating the world of employee benefits can be a time-consuming, even frustrating task. Quality benefits can help retain your best employees and recruit top candidates, but ever-changing compliance requirements and the myriad of choices and decisions that companies face can bog down a company’s benefit strategy. How can you be sure you’re crafting the best benefits package that meets your goals and improves the lives and security of your workforce?
