I thought I was too small to get a group plan because I am the only employee in my company. Then I was referred to Ken, and he built a plan that has all the benefits I want. I would recommend any small business to Ken for their group insurance needs!

When we began the process of implementing a company group benefit plan Ken worked closely with us to ensure our plan would have all the benefits that were important to us. He showed us several options, explaining the similarities and differences, which made the final decision easy. Ken has become the person we turn to when we have a need or a question about insurance.

Two years ago our family business was facing a very large premium increase at renewal on our existing benefit plan. Ken reviewed our existing plan and designed a pooled benefit plan, with better benefits, including 100% prescription drugs, children’s orthodontics, and an employee critical illness benefit. Our monthly premiums are a lot lower, the renewals are affordable, and Ken is available whenever we need assistance.
