U.S. Senate Federal Credit Union Puts People First in the Age of the Coronavirus

PR Newswire | April 14, 2020

In early March when the Coronavirus pandemic was becoming a truly serious issue in the US, many companies and organizations had to act swiftly and responsively to ensure their companies could keep up with the socio-economical demands related to the pandemic. While some businesses were already equipped to handle the ever-changing shifts in doing business, others were simply faced with not being able to meet these new challenges and demands. One such organization that had big hurdles to cross was the United States Senate Federal Credit Union (USSFCU) in Alexandria, Virginia. USSFCU's entire workforce was predominantly in-office only and without any expectation to move an entire workforce to work remotely. Additionally, some employees simply could not work from home. The Credit Union seemed to face a daunting task to move its entire operation from an in-office only operation to a remote-only operation in just a few weeks. This task landed squarely in the lap of USSFCU President and CEO, Timothy L. Anderson.  The change had to happen to safeguard USSFCU members' health as well as the health and wellness of the USSFCU workforce. Anderson and his team had an uphill battle but it was a battle they were determined to win.

Triton Benefits & HR Solutions Delivers Affordable Group Health Insurance to Companies Who Struggle to Meet Participation Requirements

Triton Benefits & HR Solutions | November 09, 2022

Triton Benefits & HR Solutions, a national employee benefits broker and HR consulting firm, is helping small businesses achieve their employee retention goals. An employer-sponsored group medical plan is the most sought-after employee benefit. Unfortunately, due to high participation requirements, many organizations are not able to provide a bona fide, major medical plan to their most valuable asset, their employees. As the end of the year draws near, Employee Health Benefits are at the forefront of HR departments. With the 2023 enrollment season on the horizon, many small businesses face complex challenges. A recent study by the Kaiser Family Foundation found that businesses with fewer than 50 employees are less likely to offer an employer-sponsored group medical plan to their employees. As a result of unrealistic participation requirements, many small businesses struggle to find affordable, quality healthcare coverage for their workers. Triton Benefits & HR Solutions deliver affordable group health plans that have traditionally been nearly impossible to underwrite when low employee participation is a challenge "If you're looking for a group medical plan, and only 5 out of 50 employees want to participate, typically no insurance carrier wants to write your policy. However, Triton offers businesses in these situations a 'Golden Ticket' with an insurance solution when only a small portion of the employees are looking to opt into the company's benefits plan," - Triton's CEO, Steve Rosenthal Triton manages over $500 Million in group health insurance premiums and works with all major carriers nationwide. Their ability to leverage long-standing relationships with major health insurance carriers and their in-depth industry knowledge to create unique and customized healthcare options sets them apart from other employee benefits brokers. In addition, they offer a concierge-style service which means they are extremely hands-on with every client relationship and provide a personalized touch that is hard to find anywhere else. If you're a business facing a low participation issue among your workforce and need quality and affordable Group Health Benefits, don't hesitate to contact Triton Benefits & HR Solutions by visiting their website or calling them at 1-800-OK-TRITON. About Triton Benefits & HR Solutions Triton Benefits & HR Solutions is a national group health benefits brokerage and human resource consulting firm. Triton is committed to helping organizations navigate the complexities of employee benefits and human resources. The company has offices in New York, Texas, and Philadelphia, headquartered in Woodbridge, NJ.
