Employee benefits play an important role in the lives of your employees, and are also an important part of the employer’s business plan. Employee benefit plans may consist of a number of components, including health, retirement, life and disability insurance. Companies have the flexibility to offer all or a combination of some of these benefits to their employees.
Brooker Insurance Agency’s Employee Benefits department specializes in the development of innovative benefit solutions that are responsive to your company’s goal to balance the overall benefit cost to the business with the desire to offer a benefit package that provides real value to the employee.

We are committed to providing our customers with innovative and cost effective solutions for their health and group benefit needs. We utilize a number of funding strategies including fully insured, partially self-funded, fully self-funded, and defined contribution.

There are a number of group health benefit options available to employers, and every option varies widely in terms of coverage and cost.

Ancillary benefits are health benefits offered by employers in addition to a standard health plan. These benefits can be either employer funded or offered on a voluntary basis (employee pays for coverage). Examples of ancillary benefits include dental, vision and life/AD&D insurance. These benefits can be a very important part of a company’s group benefits package.
Even if your company has been working toward decreasing costs and limiting spending, offering ancillary benefits to employees can be very affordable, and can go a long way toward promoting a healthy and productive staff. The cost of ancillary benefits can be fully covered by the employer or the employer can choose to share the cost with the employees.
Our Employee Benefits Division will conduct a full and comprehensive review of your current benefit plan to determine how your benefit program can be made more cost effective yet continue to provide value to your employees.
