Walker, Higgins Associates has a long, rich history in the employee benefits business. Since 1950, we have been an industry leader in service and innovation.
In 2017, we entered into an agreement with Forum Benefits, LLC for purposes of offering employee benefit consultation.
Who is Forum Benefits?
Forum was founded in Greenville, SC in 1999 as Palmetto Benefit Management, an independently owned insurance agency specializing in employee benefit planning and administration. They expanded to Charleston, SC in 2009 and Atlanta, GA in 2015.
In 2014, Forum became the first, and only, SC member of Benefit Advisors Network (BAN), a national association of best in class independent benefit consulting firms. This affiliation allows them to bring national resources such as Legal & Compliance, Actuarial & Reinsurance, Captives, Data Analytics & Benchmarking, HR Administration & Technology, and Wellness & Total Health Management. Additionally, due to our aggregated size (2.5 million covered lives), we offer proprietary products and preferential pricing to our clients not seen elsewhere in the marketplace.
In January of 2017, Forum joined 23 other entrepreneurial insurance and financial services companies across the United States to form Alera Group, an employee benefits firm with approximately $158 million in revenue. The new firm has more than 750 employees serving more than 20,000 clients in 40 U.S. based offices across 15 states.
