BK Group Benefits, LLC is Built Upon a Brown & Knapp Tradition of Serving Businesses and Individuals With Insurance Planning Services Since 1980.
BK Group Benefits LLC has been providing clients with tailored health, dental, life, disability, and other ancillary benefit plans for over 20 years.
Brown & Knapp was founded by Ken Brown and Bob Knapp. The company initially concentrated on the design and implementation of selective pick and choose benefit programs and business continuity planning. Information technology was employed early on to create a unique option for plan design and servicing.
A team approach with attorneys and accountants allowed our clients to implement creative asset preservation programs.
In 1990, Brown & Knapp designed and implemented the first portable, long term disability program for medical students and residents who were concerned about limited insurability issues if they contracted HIV, hepatitis, etc. At this time, Brown & Knapp opened a Philadelphia office. Approximately 850 new medical students and residents enter this plan each year.
In 1995, BK Group Benefits, LLC was established to assist our existing and new clients in the group health, life and disability insurance markets. Our primary goal has been to provide exceptional customer service without our clients having to go directly to the carriers.
In 1995, a relationship was formed with Marchetti, Brown & Bishop to open a branch of their property and casualty business in our Branford office. This firm has an outstanding reputation in both the business and personal insurance markets.
