Long-Standing Indiana Agency Joins Global Network of Independent Employee Advisory Firms

United Benefit Advisors (UBA), the nation’s leading independent employee benefits advisory organization, is pleased to welcome The DeHayes Group as its newest Partner Firm. With two offices in Fort Wayne, Indiana, The DeHayes Group’s mission is to go beyond just providing insurance and to exceed the expectations of their clients. For more than three decades, the staff at The DeHayes Group has viewed themselves as one of their client’s employees in order to seek improvement on price, products, and services, all while monitoring the ever-changing governmental and industry trends.

“We are extremely excited and honored to be the newest UBA Partner Firm,” says Kevin Burns, Group Benefits Practice Leader at The DeHayes Group. “The UBA partnership further enhances the services and capabilities we have to offer to the market, and it directly benefits our clients with increased carrier leverage and improved access to leading national resources.”

What makes The DeHayes Group different is their personal approach by providing unique solutions for their unique clientele. They do this by being locally owned, independent, and client centered, yet still having the buying power of a large national company. Furthermore, they practice the ART of Insurance, which is a practice of managing the risks that their clients Avoid, Retain, and Transfer. Through this process of risk management, they are able to round out their client’s insurance coverage so that they only buy the insurance they need.

“As a well-respected and well-established agency, I am pleased that The DeHayes Group is going to be part of UBA’s growing list of Partner Firms,” says UBA CEO Les McPhearson. “I am particularly impressed with how they embrace the concept of immersing themselves into their client’s organization in order better understand their insurance needs.”

As the newest Partner Firm of UBA, The DeHayes Group joins a network of employee benefits advisory firms that serve employers of all sizes across the United States, Canada, and Europe. As a combined group, UBA’s annual employee benefit revenues rank it among the top five employee benefit advisory organizations in the U.S.
