December 18, 2003

Keenan & Associates, the largest privately held brokerage firm in California, announced a technology collaboration with Common Census®, Inc. to streamline voluntary employee benefits enrollment.

Sean Smith, CEO of Keenan & Associates, said, “This endeavor is part of our expanded business strategy and will bring the various components of benefit selection, communication, education, enrollment and administration together for plan sponsors in one program known as BenefitChoices.”

The BenefitChoices platform combines “best of breed” products from various carriers, customized client communication for both employer-paid and voluntary benefits, Section 125 and Flexible Spending Account (FSA) administration, and multiple-access enrollment technology.

Smith said, “Embracing the latest and best technology solutions as part of the BenefitChoices program will allow us to exceed our customers’ expectations — a commitment that underscores Keenan’s continued leadership position in the employee benefits industry.”

Adds Dan Jund, senior vice president of Voluntary Plans at Keenan, “Common Census brings us the right technological platform at a reasonable cost to achieve our long-term goals and broadens our commitment to our customers.”

Common Census President Daniel Freund, said, “We share Keenan’s goal of bringing benefit enrollment and administration to any client that wants to streamline their operation and reduce costs. It’s the best of both worlds, convenience and security with HR review.”

Freund said, “Common Census offers an online enrollment and administrative system to manage such things as eligibility and update employee information. It’s a one-stop destination and secure environment where employees may log in to view benefit statements, obtain forms and initiate enrollment, subject to oversight and approval by HR.”
