What We Do


Benefits U works closely with each Institution to create a marketplace of benefits tailored specifically to their institution.  Unlike other private exchanges we don’t provide a once size fits all solution and we don’t believe a one size fits all approach works for Higher Ed.  We create each marketplace based on the specific needs and goals of each institution and their demographics.

We help each Institution determine the appropriate benefits to include in their marketplace for employees to select from.  These benefits include but are not limited to:

  • Multiple Health Insurance Options
  • Dental
  • Life
  • Disability
  • Worksite products such as Critical Illness, Cancer and Accident Insurance
  • Wellness Benefits and Programs
  • And Much Much More!

Employees choose from a wide selection of benefits to build a total comprehensive benefit package that is specific to their individual or family needs.

Employees don’t do it alone.  Benefits U assists the employee every step of the way in the education, selection and enrollment of their benefits.  We don’t just give you a website.  We hold each employee’s hand and guide them through the process to make sure that the benefits they are selecting are what is right for them.

Not your typical open enrollment.  Gone are the days of providing employees with difficult to understand benefit summaries and telling them how much more has to come out of their paycheck this year for their coverage.  Through a defined contribution arrangement we are able to change the way you deliver benefits to your employees.  Instead of telling employees what will come out of their paycheck they receive benefit dollars up front and get to spend those dollars on tailoring a benefits package that fits their unique needs.

  • Online
  • Over the phone
  • Mobile
  • Inperson

Reaching your employees where they are.  We don’t all take our coffee the same way and we don’t learn and comprehend complex information that same way.  At Benefits U we understand this and that is why we work with each institution to develop a strategy and employ customized solutions to facilitate an enrollment and administration process that is not only highly effective but very user friendly.  Whatever your employees’ preference to learning about and enrolling in their benefits, whether through the computer, on their tablet device, or in person we are there to meet each employees unique needs.

Let us do the heavy lifting.  With the countless rules and regulations swirling around employee benefit plans and even more on the horizon our team of experts diligently works on each clients behalf to make sure you are meeting all of your current obligations and preparing you for future ones.

We managed all the important aspect of your benefit programs.  From enrollment, terminations, changes, claim issues, and many more daily time consuming tasks.  We handle it so you don’t have to.  Benefits U is able to work and integrate seamlessly with all of your current payroll, HRIS and internal systems.  Through direct integration we are able to reduce errors, streamline administration processes and eliminate inefficiencies.
