Group Source (The Co-operators, SSQ & RSA)
groupSource is a third party group benefits administration company which is involved in designing the employee benefit plan, acting as plan administrator, service department and claims manager for each of their client companies. As a result, these included services enable their clients to out-source the majority of their benefit administration and benefit management duties to groupSource without their monthly benefit plan premiums increasing.
groupSource provides preferred underwriting to its clients by providing long-term based pricing. Underwriters will not provide an overly aggressive rate to obtain business. Rather a stable rate environment is used which prevents the underfunding of claims that may lead to high rate increases. groupSource works with quality insurers that are able to maintain a stable rate base and those rates are reflected in the consolidated statement they provide to their clients on a monthly basis.
Each groupSource client is provided with an in-house service and administration manager which is assigned directly to their account. These managers are able to answer any questions regarding the policy which may arise. This is considered a huge benefit to companies which may not have a full-time benefit administrator.
groupSource also offers expertise in disability claims management, which guides the employer and employee through the challenges of a disability claim.
