Monday, February 10, 2014


Brock & Spencer Benefits, the employee benefit arm of Brock Insurance Agency, celebrates ten years of partnership with Benefits Partners, a leading national corporate benefits producer group. Although many insurance agencies across the country partner with Benefits Partners’ parent company NFP, their partnership with Benefits Partners is unique to the local market.

“Brock & Spencer Benefits joined Benefits Partners to add value to their practice by differentiating themselves from the competition with leading-edge thinking, preferred carrier relationships, best-of-breed products and services that could keep their clients ahead of the curve. The agents at Brock & Spencer Benefits do an excellent job in using their industry expertise, local market knowledge and in-depth understanding of benefit plans to develop customized packages,” states Robin Johnston, VP of New Member Development at NFP. As a member of Benefits Partners, Brock & Spencer Benefits has access to the following resources:

•             Partnerships that provide a vast national intellectual exchange network where firms in the industry share leading-edge ideas and benefits strategies.

•             Preferred access to key carrier relationships allowing unique leverage and buying power with carriers in multiple lines of business.

•             Compliance and regulatory support including a dedicated compliance team and industry attorneys that assist with any complex compliance or regulatory questions. The team’s expertise includes a wide variety of benefits compliance topics, including health reform, PPACA, COBRA, HIPAA, ERISA and FMLA.

“Our NFP affiliation has provided our firm the caliber of resources that a client would expect from a large consulting firm without sacrificing our independence and high-touch service model. With the ever-changing Healthcare Reform, employers have more responsibility than ever before in areas of plan options, employee education, and compliance obligations. With resources from Benefits Partners, we can be proactive and absorb the burden of responsibility for our clients,” says Justin White, Partner at Brock & Spencer Benefits.

 “In the wake of Healthcare Reform, companies and individuals are seeking guidance and knowledge to help make informative decisions that will impact their lives directly. Through Benefit Partners, we guide our clients through the minefield of compliance issues, plan alterations and avoid potential penalties and while offering a competitive and comprehensive benefit package,” added Ramsey Brock, Director of Marketing at Brock Insurance Agency.
