Total Benefit Solutions

Employee benefits has evolved into more than just offering health insurance. Today, employers are being required to keep up with ever-changing compliance rules, find ways to cut costs, and provide comprehensive benefit packages to employees in order to stay competitive.

Voluntary Benefits

We recognize that technology is an important tool for streamlining benefits administration and communication to employees. We also know that online resources are a supplement to, not a replacement for, personal service. The technology we provide is fully customizable to meet your needs. Whether you need a full online enrollment platform or just a basic site for employees to find benefit information – we have you covered. In addition, HR professionals have access to their own portal where they can access insurance information, but also sample policies, FMLA, hiring processes, performance reviews, Q&As on common HR questions, wellness information and more.

Benefits Technology

The benefits enrollment period can be a daunting time for both the HR team and employees. Using technology-based enrollment, the process can become much more efficient for both parties; saving time and eliminating additional paperwork and forms. The Murray Group offers online solutions as well as a team of technology experts to help you and employees navigate through implementation and year-round support.

Compliance & Regulatory Support

Ensuring compliance with complex healthcare and employment regulations can be daunting. Having access to qualified legal advice, when you need it, is key. Our in-house counsel will answer your questions and concerns, utilizing many years of experience, and drawing upon a team of legal experts through our partnership with Benefit Partners. You will have access to local and national attorneys that specialize in Employment Law, ERISA, HIPAA, legal documents and so much more. Unlike the national firms, we will bring these resources to bear on your company’s unique needs. We will analyze your benefits plan for compliance weaknesses and keep you informed on the latest in best practices with in-person and web hosted seminars.

Retiree Management

Certain companies like to have the opportunity to offer their employees benefits that extend past their time of work. At the Murray Group, we will sit down with you to discuss options that may be a perfect for your company and employees that are looking to ease their mind after they have chosen to retire. Our staff has extensive knowledge to know what plans will fit your company and best serve the employees if they choose to take advantage of this benefit.
