The Voluntary Benefits Magazine was created by some of the original founders and creators of limited medical and mini medical plans who believed that this industry and the worksite industry, which is a multi-billion dollar industry, was extremely underserved and does not get the attention it deserves.

Thousands of companies provide either insurance products or vendor services and solutions in this industry and yet there is not a single dedicated magazine or conference for this industry.

The Voluntary Benefits Magazine promises to provide readers with the most cutting edge advice and expertise, not by writers who know nothing about the industry, but written by the experts actively involved in the worksite industry who will give readers practical advice that they can immediately use.
