Employee Benefits

Protecting Dreams
Since 1978

Employee benefits are designed to attract quality candidates, retain the great ones, and create workplace productivity, but they are also expensive, difficult to compare and should be reviewed regularly.

At Tedford, we provide insight and guidance on plan options, funding mechanisms, enrollment/onboarding, and employee engagement. We have the flexibility to work with any insurance carrier or TPA to develop a customized plan to fit your needs and your budget.

Tedford’s extensive knowledge of the insurance marketplace, together with an understanding of the latest benefits trends and regulatory issues, enables us to supply you with relevant and successful solutions.

We will review your upcoming renewal, negotiate the rates, shop the market for you and put the information in an understandable format.
