About our Company

Company History

Benefit Strategies, LLC was originally founded in 1989 by Paul Smith and was headquartered in Bedford, New Hampshire. His original vision was to offer high quality Section 125 administrative services to small and mid-sized companies in New England. At that time many companies were largely unaware of the real savings these plans allowed. Hands-on education of benefit brokers, employers and employees coupled with reliable customer services and a reasonable fee structure lead to Benefit Strategies' success.

Over the years we have expanded our services to include COBRA, Commuter Choice and Health Reimbursement Arrangement Administration. Today, Benefit Strategies proudly partners with hundreds of benefit brokers and serves over 1,900 valued clients throughout the United States. Our team is located in a historic building which resides at our headquarters in Manchester, New Hampshire.

Our success is derived from the skill of our professional staff; we've assembled a team of professionals with both academic and "real world" experience that is invaluable to our firm. Their knowledge in various related disciplines provides them insight into the benefit needs of both growing and maturing companies. This highly effective combination of credentials, coupled with a broad base of experience, allows Benefit Strategies to operate with confidence and credibility.

We encourage you to meet our staff and talk with our clients. You will discover that we differ from other benefit administration firms in several important aspects: The quality of our people; broad range of benefit products; and our overall commitment to innovation, responsiveness, and customer satisfaction. Benefit Strategies' motto represents how we value our customers.
