COMPTEL, the competitive communications trade association, is partnering with UNITEL Insurance to offer member companies a variety of life and disability insurance packages that will help them control costs and deliver additional benefits to their employees.
UNITEL is making a special offer for group and voluntary life insurance and short- and long-term disability benefits through Principal Life for COMPTEL members. Members can access discounted pricing, three-year rate guarantees, underwriting concessions and the ability to design their own plans.
“Businesses in every industry are faced with hard decisions when evaluating the rising costs of employee benefits, and our member companies are no exception,” said Jerry James, COMPTEL CEO. “By working with UNITEL, COMPTEL hopes to enable its members – particularly small and mid-sized companies – to enhance their employee benefits programs, so they can continue to attract and retain the best and brightest individuals with comprehensive benefits at a time when other businesses are scaling back these offerings.”
UNITEL is the largest insurance agency for the communications industry in the U.S., active in the sector for more 10 years. It serves incumbents, CLECs, broadband companies and ISPs, well as newer entrants, such as middle mile providers.
“UNITEL is extremely excited to work with COMPTEL and its member companies. We fully understand the challenges and opportunities facing the industry and look forward to assisting COMPTEL members as they look for ways to control employee benefit costs,” said Ric Stoakes, vice president of UNICO Group, UNITEL’s parent company. “UNITEL’s relationship with over 400 telecommunications and technology companies allows us to bring our clients competitive pricing and unique benefit design options.”
