Who We Are
EG Benefit Advisors is an independent insurance agency focused primarily on finding benefit solutions for small and medium-sized business owners across a host of industries – everything from manufacturing, distribution, and construction to education, health care, and personal services, to mention just a few.
What We Do
Our goal is to help business owners provide their employees with a strong benefits package in the most cost-effective manner possible. We want to enhance their companies’ profitability and competitive edge by attracting and retaining high quality staff, enhancing employee morale and productivity, and controlling operating costs.
For sole proprietors and individuals, we can also provide guidance and help them select the financial protection they need for themselves and their families, such as life insurance and short and long-term disability.
EG Benefit Advisors is quite simply in the business of helping people.
Our mission is to enable business owners to sustain growth and financial stability and profitability by putting together valuable and affordable benefit plans for their staff. And at the employee level, to provide support and assistance when they need it most – at time of claim when they are dealing with an unexpected health or life event.
