Top rated Wichita group health insurance and employee benefit broker

Having employee benefit packages to offer your hard working employees is one proven way to keep them happy and working for your company for many years to come. It provides them and their families with a way to care for themselves and futures at a more affordable cost. In fact, this is one thing that many job hunters seek as they’re out applying and interviewing for a new career in their field of expertise.

There are many different types of benefits and insurances that you can add into an employee benefit plan. One of the perks you’ll find that many jobseekers are looking for in an all-inclusive plan includes pension. A benefit pension plan is a fund in which a sum of the employee’s money is accumulated and saved as they work for your company. This money is then divvied out in payments after that employee retires. A defined benefit plan will have fixed payments that are paid out to the employee regularly after retirement. All corporate defined benefit plans as well as many other types of defined benefit plans are governed by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA).
