As we enter our fifth year publishing the Benefits Focus newsletter, we thought it was time for a reboot.

Therefore, the Alper Employee Benefits Team is excited to unveil a refreshed Benefits Focus. We will continue to bring you up-to-date information on benefits trends, legislation and compliance, drawing from some new sources which we think will make you a better informed benefits consumer.

Sincerely,
Will Pinn, Director of Employee Benefits
