Value Beyond Benefits

Diving Deeper to Minimize Cost and Maximize Value

Specializing in employee benefits consulting since 1998


An employee benefit program is much like an iceberg. What an employee sees is only the “tip of the iceberg” while employers are responsible for the 90% that lies beneath the surface. At Milestone Benefits Agency, our “Value Beyond Benefits” is built from the bottom up to support everything you do for your employees’ benefits program. Shopping your plans and negotiating the best cost for the right benefits is just the beginning. We dive deeper to support you and your organization with compliance, communications, reporting, benefit administration, strategic planning, open enrollment, employee service, employee education and more.
