Our mission is to find the best possible insurance at the lowest possible price.  We make insurance easy by shopping all the major carriers and bringing you an easy to read summary of options.

“No” is not in our vocabulary. When a client asks…our job is to find a solution.

Benefit Connections was started in 2003 with a focus on helping employers in Central Pennsylvania save time and money on their health insurance. In our first year of operation, we were able to help our clients save over $330,000 on their health insurance costs.

Today, Benefit Connections provides a full array of services that include employer based fully-insured and self-insured benefit plans, Medicare products, individual products, dental and vision insurance, life insurance, short and long-term disability insurance.

We are a licensed third-party administrator (TPA) providing clients with customized health reimbursement arrangements (HRA) and self-funded dental plans. In addition we provide hands on assistance with the complex compliance element of managing an employee benefit plan.

Our clients include small and large businesses, non-profit organizations, school districts, churches, manufacturers, and individuals. No matter how big or how small, we treat every client like a fortune 500 company.

We are an independent agency that can provide you with a single point of contact to evaluate insurance options from all carriers. Our employees are licensed insurance agents with a vast wealth of knowledge and over 75 years of combined experience. We make insurance easy!!!

Our company goals focus on a balance of work and personal life. We are proud to share these goals with you:

  1. Operate with Christian values in how we treat our employees, clients, and other business and personal associates.
  2. Be recognized for our creative approach to health insurance.
  3. Build permanent relationships with our clients by providing top-notch service, integrity, and common sense.
  4. Create a work environment that encourages all employees to work hard with accuracy, efficiency, and loyalty so that we can spend more time with our families and friends.
  5. Remain the top employee benefits company in Central Pennsylvania.

When it came time to renew our health insurance, the insurance carrier increased our premium by 40%. I called Benefit Connections and, within a week, they had a proposal back to our company with different options for our health insurance. They helped us choose the best options for our company and did most of the paperwork for us. They were able to get us health insurance that covered more than our old policy and cost us less money. They made the process easy and helped to dispel some of the myths that carriers lead us to believe. I would highly recommend Benefit Connections to anyone who needs health insurance.

We work with Benefit Connections for health insurance, plus life, disability, dental, and vision insurance. They guided us to good plans, established Health Reimbursement Accounts and Health Savings Accounts for us, and helped us communicate those changes to our employees. Their hard work and expertise has helped us control our costs while, at the same time, maximize our employees benefits. The Benefit Connections team bends over backwards to provide us with the answers we need and with the help to get us where we need to be. Plus, its a pleasure to work with each and every one of their team. I highly recommend Benefit Connections as your employee benefits partner.
