TRUEbenefits, an Alera Group Company Overview

TRUEbenefits provides practical, forward-looking and cost-effective employee benefit consulting services for leading Northwest employers. We take a custom approach that is fine-tuned to achieving your business goals and giving you the edge in recruiting and retaining the best people in your industry.

Our solutions are simple: We help you manage risk, save time, and reduce your spend on employee benefits. We take a complex, high-cost world and make it affordable and understandable. We do this with passion, total transparency, and a singular focus that keeps our clients’ well being top of mind.

New questions; new answers. We’ll ask questions you haven’t heard before. Digging deeper gives us the understanding to customize cost-effective solutions that advance our clients’ business goals, see them through times of rapid change, and help recruit and retain the best people in their industries.

Fresh thinking; full transparency. We’re structured differently, and so we think differently—taking a consultative approach that’s driven by client need, not by sales volume or transactions. Our clients know they can count on us for total transparency and independent point of view.

Top-caliber professionals; bottom-line results. Our firm attracts experienced senior-level people who value the time we give them to go above and beyond for our clients. It’s not enough to be reactive around renewal time. Together with the active involvement of our principals on every account, we bring the strategic thinking, attention to detail and proactive perspective that employee benefits need all year round.

Highly rated; highly valued. By delivering measurable results and client satisfaction, TRUEbenefits has earned a client retention rate of 98—one the highest in the nation. Most important, it earns our clients’ confidence that they’re getting higher value from every benefit dollar.
