About Benefit Advisors Network

Founded in 2002 by five agencies, BAN is an exclusive, premier, national network of independent, employee benefit brokerage and consulting companies. They deliver industry leading tools, technology, and expertise to member firms so that they can deliver optimum results to their employee benefit customers.  BAN’s members, known as Smart Partners partly because of their highly collaborative interactions, are screened prior to being granted membership to ensure they distinguish themselves from their competitors through their knowledge of the industry, their ethical approach, their business acumen, and their strategic vision. 

To preserve and enhance the intimate level of sharing between the Smart Partners, BAN turns away more candidates than they accept, ensuring that its members are peers with the most progressive and innovative employee benefit consultants and brokers from throughout the entire country.
