Why a UBA-Certified Insurance Broker Is an Added Employee Perk

Hiring an employee benefits firm to manage your company’s benefits plans has its advantages. Instead of managing your company’s employee benefit packages in-house, experts at a firm like CanopyNation know the latest local and federal regulations regarding labor workforces and have access to a range of insurance providers and offerings. Partner firms of United Benefit Advisors® offer even more advantages to companies. UBA brings together top employee benefit firms from across the United States to pool their knowledge and resources. What does that mean exactly? If you select CanopyNation to manage your employee benefits, you not only have access to our team’s experts, but also to dozens of other firms and brokers in the nation.

Why should I hire a UBA firm?

Evidence has shown that UBA Partner Firms deliver employee benefit solutions that attract and retain the best employees, while controlling costs. Employers serviced by UBA Partner Firms mirror 98% of employers and industries, which include a variety of companies from small to large companies and covers every geographic region and major U.S. metropolitan area. The benefits of choosing an insurance broker with a UBA certification is twofold – you get the strength of a nationally recognized firm while still receiving the local ownership accountability and customer service.

How does this help my company?

UBA partner firms, while remaining independent, are joined together to gain the knowledge and resources from other partners across the country. CanopyNation clients have access to shared wisdom from 130 member firms across the U.S. Our insurance brokers have access to a full arsenal of experts around the world. Instead of working with one firm and their ideas, all UBA partner firms, including CanopyNation, collaborate on products, services, features and strategies. As a result, clients receive sophisticated, cost-effective solutions equal to or better than those from large brokerages. Simultaneously, clients will continue to receive the personal attention and close-knit service that only an independent, local advisor can deliver.

Can’t I get this same access with a large brokerage?

Like CanopyNation, those designated as a UBA Partner Firm are benefit advisors with a local presence who understand the unique needs of their community. We have the same resources and national presence, but our clients won’t get passed off to call centers or put down to the bottom of the list. Instead of a larger brokerage, you and your employees will work directly with our team to ensure that your organization’s needs are met with the highest level of service and that your team members have full control and understanding of their benefit packages. The advantage of a local ownership is you will receive a sense of urgency and responsiveness from your benefits expert.
