These days there are so many ways to buy insurance products, online, directly through an insurance company or through your bank. Using an insurer broker’s expertise will ensure you are making the best-informed decision in a very complex market. Here are five reasons why your company should consider using an Employee Benefits broker.
- Time: Researching the best insurance deals can be quite time consuming and frustrating. Independent Insurance brokers have access to many insurance companies and can quickly find the best insurance deals for you, saving you time and hassle.
- Peace of Mind: An employee benefits consultant will make sure you have the right amount of insurance for your business. They will know what type of coverage is relevant and necessary for your specific business. The insurance industry is a highly regulated industry, so you can rest assured that your broker will be up-to-date with the latest trends, changes and legislation in the insurance market. Brokers act on your behalf and provide advice in your best interest.
- Value for money: It is no surprise that an insurance broker can save you money. There are many benefits on the market that increase year on year and by having a broker review the market for you, you can be sure you that you are getting the best benefits at the most competitive rate. The brokers’ commissions are paid by the insurance company, not by you.
- Product expertise: Brokers help you to understand what exactly you are covered for. Insurance is a jargon-filled industry, a good broker will help to simplify the products you purchase and fully understand the coverage you are being offered.
- Claims: In the event of you needing to claim, your insurance broker can guide you through the process and manage the claim on your behalf. They act as your advocate, leaving you without the stress that claims processes can bring.
