Choosing a Benefits Administrator: What to Look For
If you own or run a business, the benefits plan you choose can have a big impact on the success of your organization. Why? Because more and more, employees are looking at the types of healthcare, retirement, and other benefits that you offer, comparing it against options from other potential employers—and making decisions about where to work based on that evaluation. Employees who felt satisfied with their benefits had the highest loyalty in a recent employee trend survey conducted by MetLife.
Clearly, employees are looking for a quality benefits plan. So, what can you do to select the right plan for your business? The benefits experts at Advantage Administrators are here to help with tips and to-dos for you to consider when reviewing your next benefits plan.

Smartphones are an important part of our everyday lives, from how we check the weather to where we go to eat to how we communicate with each other. And your benefits plan is no different. With many different details to consider, your employees need a fast, simple way to keep track of their benefits. And Advantage Administrators has you covered: our Benefits Mobile App allows users to view their account activity, check their balances, file claims for their flexible spending accounts and health savings accounts, make payments, and much more! With all this power available at the tip of their fingers, your employees can get the answers they need, check items off their list, and move on with their days. Now that’s easy!
When it comes to their benefits, your employees might have questions. But where can they find the answers? You can make them search—or your benefits administrator can make the information available to them, right at their fingertips. With qualified expense lists, goal calculators, blogs, and other resources, Advantage gives your employees the answers they need and helps them stay informed of relevant benefits changes. Working with a proactive administrator like Advantage, your employees don’t have to spend time searching for this information, keeping them on top of their benefits plan and, most important of all, satisfied.
