The EBNY Difference
At Executive Benefits of New York (EBNY), we are a family team that provides custom services to each of our clients. By having a Certified Financial Planner™ (CFP®) on staff along with a Group Benefits Associate (GBA), we bring the convenience of addressing all employee benefits and business insurance needs under one roof. This allows the client to eliminate the need for several brokers, saving both time and money. We pride ourselves in the quality of our customer service and are constantly looking for ways to improve it. At EBNY we regularly update our clients on new regulations and plans that may better address their changing needs. As an independent firm, we do not have to fulfill any quotas or minimums, providing our clients with the greatest level of satisfaction.
