The ranks of KASB’s Employee Benefit Solutions customers continue to grow, as three additional districts prepare to entrust their employee benefits with the organization.
Andover USD 385, Concordia USD 333 and Lyndon USD 421 are the newest customers of EBS.
Employee Benefit Solutions, which is offered by the KASB Risk Management Group, is a technology-based service that improves management of both employer sponsored benefits and voluntary benefits. EBS streamlines the annual job of selecting benefits.
KASB for decades has offered districts workers’ compensation, property casualty and student accident insurance. With the recent addition of Employee Benefit Solutions, KASB Assistant Executive Director of Risk Management Rod Spangler says the organization has the capacity to cover buildings, staff, students, and employee benefits including health, life, dental and vision insurance coverage, retirement planning products and services, and administration of flexible spending accounts.
“We spent the better part of 2017 researching, conducting user group meetings, selecting carrier partners and designing Kansas educator specific benefits,” Spangler said. “We launched this service in early 2018 with the hopes of establishing a good strong early adopter group of users. I am thrilled our team has done that.”
In contrast to traditional insurance brokerages, all KASB Risk Management and Employee Benefit Solutions profits are dedicated to Kansas public schools. “You’re already providing those services to your district,” Spangler says. “Why not put that money right back into service of your students?”
