Employers are being asked to balance the increasing financial burden of competitive employee benefits packages with the task of keeping up with a rapidly changing regulatory environment. Managing an employee benefits program now comes with significant administrative and compliance burdens. That’s where we come in.
Northern Benefits has been helping employers navigate the benefits landscape for over 20 years. We research, analyze and track the regulatory environment and present clients with individualized, comprehensive options. As licensed representatives of all major carriers in health, life, disability, and dental, we can ensure that clients make the best strategic decisions for their business as well as their employees.
Using technology, we deliver a platform for benefits, compliance and all HR functions. We offer expert advice on benefit plan design and management as well as solutions for ERISA compliance, COBRA compliance, employee communications and HR support.
The Affordable Care Act has exponentially increased the administrative and financial burden placed on employers. Navigating the changing health care environment can be challenging. However, at Northern Benefits, compliance is easy. We prepare a company specific, comprehensive compliance calendar to assist each client with ACA reporting, fees, notice and appeals requirements.
Northern Benefits also provides guidance on FMLA, ADA, and FLSA issues and HR training and education. Additionally, we offer DOL audit review services and ERISA support, including Wrap documents and annual 5500 filing assistance. In order to ensure that our clients remain compliant, Northern Benefits sends out a monthly newsletter with reform updates and also provides live links and portal access to various HR and compliance websites.
Northern Benefits works in conjunction with your wellness team and current wellness program to offer both on-site and off-site personalized health coaching for increased utilization of preventative care visits and much more.
