AmWINS Group Benefits, a wholesale distributor of employee benefits and professional services, has introduced a voluntary benefits practice, aimed to provide supplemental benefits to professionals and their clients.
In addition to working with groups managing up to 200,000 lives, the new practice will provide coverage solutions including life, dental, vision, accident, short-term disability, critical illness, cancer and medical gap insurance for employer groups with 50 to 1,000 lives.
Additionally, the company will provide ancillary support services with proper plan administration, customer service, benefits communication, web-based technology, call center support and use of enrollment counselors.
AmWINS Group Benefits president Sam Fleet said, "We are pleased to offer these additional coverage options to our customers as complementary benefits in an effort to help today’s employers attract and retain their best talent."
Robert Shestack has been appointed by the company as voluntary benefits practice lead.
Prior to joining AmWINS Group earlier this year, Shestack served as managing director and national practice leader at two Marsh & McLennan businesses, Marsh US Consumer and Marsh & McLennan Agency The Trion Group.
