COMPANY STORY

Decades Of Caring For Workers and Employers

For more than 30 years, Fringe Benefit Group and its affiliate companies have helped thousands of employers design and administer benefit programs for the prevailing wage market. During its history, the company has significantly expanded both its capabilities and offering, becoming a leading provider of benefits solutions for government contractors and variable hour employers, including many Fortune 500 and ENR 400 firms.

In 1983, Fringe Benefit Group was founded to provide bona fide benefit plans to government contractors working under the Davis-Bacon Act and the Service Contract Act. The knowledge and experience gained during these years eventually led to the development of The Contractors Plan, a comprehensive benefits program offering retirement plans and major medical, dental, vision and life insurance designed specifically for government contractors. Specialization in the prevailing wage market led Fringe Benefit Group to develop The American Worker, which offers effective group benefit plans designed specifically for hourly and part-time workers. The American Worker was the first solution of its kind to develop an enrollment platform and customer support call center designed to answer the challenges of a variable hour workforce.

Today, Fringe Benefit Group employs more than 100 people and serves more than 125,000 participants. The company has built long-term relationships with many of the nation’s leading carriers, including Nationwide, Transamerica, United Healthcare, Ameritas, Kaiser Permanente, MetLife, Independence Holding Company and several Blue Cross Blue Shield members. Since the beginning, Fringe Benefit Group has focused on marketing and distributing its products through a growing national network of more than 600 brokers and agents. The company is actively involved in major trade associations, including the Associated Builders and Contractors, Inc., the American Subcontractors Association, the Construction Industry CPAs/Consultants Association and the Council of Insurance Agents and Brokers. With regional offices across the country, Fringe Benefit Group is headquartered in Austin, Texas.
