The Benchmark Team has been a great help with us at Lush Experiences. They carefully and expertly guided us through the process of signing up for our health insurance. Which can be a difficult and complicated process, but we couldn’t of had an easier time. Our options were presented to us clearly, and all of our many questions were answered. As a small business, it is so important to have partners like Benchmark.
I had the pleasure of working with the Benchmark Planning Group during our company’s recent health insurance renewal. We were apprehensive about switching brokers at first, but Benchmark completely won us over with their desire to address our company’s evolving insurance needs. The entire team at Benchmark Planning Group was very professional, courteous, knowledgeable, and thorough. They provided us with numerous policy options from various carriers, and patiently answered our questions as we moved closer to a final decision. It was a pleasure working with Benchmark Planning Group and we are already looking forward to our next renewal!

We have truly enjoy working with the Benchmark Planning Group team and would highly recommend them to any other company who is looking to get true professionals to handle their benefits experience.
