At CCI, we are deliberately different. Staffed with individuals from unique backgrounds and differing viewpoints, we utilize these perspectives to create innovative, non-standard solutions to meet each client’s varying needs.
The cornerstone to “The CCI Approach” is our investment of time and resources spent learning about and assessing each client’s unique culture, goals, and challenges. This investment allows us to continually modify our solutions to fit into each client’s ever-changing puzzle.
Benefits are a valuable component in the compensation you provide to your employees, providing security to each employee and their family for today and the future. However, for employers, providing benefits can be costly, complicated and, time-consuming. At CCI, we begin by focusing on managing the hard dollars paid to outside vendors, but we do not stop there. Our benefits administration specialists also provide the tools and support to dramatically reduce the resources needed to communicate and administer benefit programs for each of our clients. The CCI goal is to become a trusted and invaluable extension of our client’s human resource organizations, not just another vendor.
Providing benefits to employees is a significant cost to most employers, often ranking as one of the highest expenses after payroll. CCI’s proven methods control necessary plan and administrative costs and eliminate unnecessary expenses.
Continually changing federal and state legislation add to the complexity of providing benefits to employees. The financial consequences of not being compliant can be considerable. Our consultants and attorney-staffed compliance team make sure that you are compliant and that you understand your obligations.
Proper benefit program administration can be extremely time-consuming, requiring dedicated employer resources. CCI alleviates this burden through a combination of our free technology-based resources and our dedicated benefit administration staff.
Key employees are a valuable asset! An executive benefit program is a powerful tool to attract and keep these important employees. When structured correctly, executive benefits can also protect employers in the event of a key employee’s death or disability. Utilizing traditional and non-traditional vehicles, CCI designs cost-effective executive benefit programs that provide:

Proper insurance and risk management is critical to a business’ prosperity. When well-designed, an insurance and risk management program will reduce the need to allocate capital for potential setbacks and also free resources.
Beyond ensuring that you have appropriate protection, our Property & Casualty team deliberately provides a level of service far beyond the insurance industry standard.
