Austin, TX (PRWEB) December 03, 2014
Fringe Benefit Group, an industry leader in the design, implementation and administration of benefits for hourly and part-time workers, today announced the new name of its benefit program for part-time workers, The American Worker.
Fringe Benefit Group acquired The American Worker Plans, Inc., an Illinois-based Managing General Agent specializing in limited medical, voluntary and self-funded benefit options for employers with hourly and part-time workforces, in August 2014.
“The American Worker brand really resonates with us because the products we are offering are designed to help working Americans,” said Brian Robertson, EVP of Fringe Benefit Group. “We have been helping part-time and hourly workers for 20 years and our experience will be a tremendous asset for companies who must now adhere to ACA guidelines for full-time and part-time workers. ACA penalties are affecting how companies are evaluating their benefits offering and we are available to consult with employers and their brokers to discuss available options and determine what is appropriate for their particular situation.”
The Affordable Care Act (ACA) has greatly changed the benefits landscape. Companies with hourly and part-time employees face the constant challenge of attracting and retaining quality workers. Fringe Benefit Group’s benefit offering is specifically designed for employers looking for a plan for part-time employees that is affordable, flexible, and easily administered. The Fringe Benefit Group team works closely with brokers to customize plan design, pricing, communication, implementation, and enrollment to meet their customers’ individual needs.
Previously known as Framework, The American Worker provides employers with a best-in-class benefits package, communication and enrollment services, and unique billing and premium payment options. Benefits include Minimum Essential Coverage (MEC) and Minimum Value, fixed indemnity, inpatient and outpatient supplemental, dental, vision, critical illness, short-term disability, life insurance, and accident plans. All benefits are offered on a group basis and are guaranteed issue with no pre-existing condition limitations. Customers include many of the nation’s leading restaurant, retail, hospitality and staffing companies. The American Worker products are underwritten by top carriers including Nationwide Life Insurance Company, Standard Security Life Insurance Company, MetLife, Companion Life Insurance Company, Ameritas and New Benefits.
