CUNA Mutual Transitions Employee Benefits Business To Digital Insurance
MADISON. Wis. (6/12/13)--CUNA Mutual Group Tuesday announced it is transitioning its Employee Benefits book of business to Digital Insurance, an employee benefits-only agency. The move is a means of providing credit unions with a better employee-benefits product solution.

Digital Benefit Advisors (DBA), the largest division of Digital Insurance, will service the business, providing resources, expertise and education to help credit unions prepare for the complexities of healthcare reform required by the Affordable Care Act.

"At CUNA Mutual Group, we regularly evaluate our products and services to ensure we provide the best solutions available to meet the needs of credit unions, their employees and members," said Robert Trunzo, president, CUNA Mutual Group Insurance & Financial Services Company. "When we are unable to provide the best solution on our own, we have a successful track record of bringing in market leaders like DBA to deliver those solutions to credit unions."

As part of the transaction, several CUNA Mutual Group Employee Benefits representatives will join the Digital team.

The transition builds on a partnership CUNA Mutual Group and Digital created in February, when the companies announced they were partnering to provide healthcare reform education to credit unions.

DBA combines the commitment of experienced, local market advisors with the technology and resources of a national company. Employers receive access to a broader variety of carriers, tools and proprietary products. One advantage includes direct policyholder access to a Customer Advocate Center, where licensed Digital representatives answer benefits and policy questions.

"The transition of CUNA Mutual Group's Employee Benefits book of business enables us to build on the work we've been doing since February," said Adam Bruckman, president/CEO of Digital Insurance. "DBA is now in an even stronger position to help credit union customers address a significant business need, ensuring they are knowledgeable about changes in health care reform and prepared to modify their employee benefits packages accordingly."

Over the next several weeks, CUNA Mutual Group sales representatives will contact their 3,200 Employee Benefits credit union customers to share the benefits of working with Digital and ensure a smooth transition process. In the meantime, credit unions can direct questions to their CUNA Mutual Group account team.
