Wilshire Benefits Group is committed to helping our clients make appropriate business decisions regarding their employee benefit plans. We keep our clients up-to-date on the latest ACA changes through active face-to-face consulting, regular Compliance Alerts, seminars, webinars, and newsletters. Changes impacting plan designs are discussed with our clients and addressed in a timely fashion. Most changes will impact our clients at renewal time. Thus, our renewal strategy meetings that take place mid-year address many of these types of changes.
Our clients at Wilshire Benefits Group are provided complimentary access to our on-line resource tool called ThinkHR. Clients have unlimited access to the latest legislative information, access to a multitude of HR documents, training modules for management and supervisory staff, and links to sites for specific details on benefits and human resources.
Wilshire Benefits Group works very closely with your ERISA benefits attorneys to make sure all legal documents for the Health & Welfare benefit plans are maintained and updated with any legislative and/or regulatory changes. We will also work with our client’s specific ERISA benefits attorney(s) to update the Summary Plan Description and assist with any questions relating to Form 5500 filings. We do not charge a separate fee to our clients for this service. The only fees incurred would be the fees charged by the client’s attorneys for their services.
An Ever-Changing Landscape
The Affordable Care Act (ACA), HIPAA, COBRA, ERISA and other legislative rules have created a complicated compliance landscape for most businesses.

Benefit offerings are a significant part of any compensation discussion and their value helps your business remain competitive.
