Vita Benefits Group Joins United Benefit Advisors

Vita Joins Nationally Ranked International Network of Independent Employee Benefits Advisory Firms, Spanning North America and Europe

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 15, 2013) - The Vita Companies, a leading San Francisco Bay Area and Silicon Valley employee benefits firm, is proud to announce it has joined United Benefit Advisors (UBA), the nation's leading independent benefits advisory organization. As the newest Partner of UBA, Vita joins a network of over 140 employee benefits advisory firms that service employers of all sizes across the nation, Canada and Europe. Collectively, UBA Partner Firms rank third in benefits revenue reported, competing against AON and Mercer.

"Joining UBA allows us to expand our knowledge of the benefits landscape, both in the US and overseas," said Karl Hansen, CEO and Principal at Vita. "Engaging with firms around the world will only improve our client experience in all aspects of insurance and employee benefits. Vita is excited about our future as a Partner Firm with UBA, as we prepare for the new benefits challenges of 2014 and beyond."

UBA is a unique community, which provides its Partner Firms the ability to tap the expert knowledge of more than 2,000 benefit professionals and offer world class products and services to best meet the needs of employers offering competitive benefits packages. While receiving these advantages from a national organization, Partner Firms remain independent and are not a franchise of a larger company. Partners understand the unique challenges that local employers face and provide insightful, personalized service, backed by the knowledge and resources of UBA. To qualify for Partnership, benefits advisory firms are required to adhere to strict professional guidelines, including a code of conduct when engaging with other Partner Firms, and must be licensed and certified to operate at the highest levels in the benefits space.
