First Benefits Insurance Mutual
First Benefits Insurance Mutual (FBIM) was designed to lower workers’ compensation expenses for North Carolina employers.
FBIM has been delivering quality service to Chamber members for over 20 years, providing Asheville Chamber member organizations with competitive, stable workers’ compensation coverage. Created by NC business owners for NC business owners, FBIM offers several interest-free payment plans, individualized underwriting (no predictive modeling), aggressive claims management, and will consider writing new ventures which means no “risk pool” for you.
“At FBIM we place a high priority on ensuring our insureds and appointed agents understand that workers’ compensation is a balance of protecting the employee in the event of an unfortunate on-the-job accident, while at the same time protecting the employer from exorbitant costs related to litigation, medical expenses, and other business expenses related to workers’ injuries,” says First Benefits VP of Marketing Richard Suddarth.
Your Asheville Area Chamber membership gives you access to FBIM’s competitive rates, skilled underwriting and personalized service. FBIM staff understands your frustrations with the large insurance companies and provides the best and friendliest customer service. If you have an established relationship with your insurance agent, First Benefits Insurance Mutual will be happy to contact your current agent to discuss policy needs or work with a Chamber member insurance agent and ask for a no obligation quote. For more information, contact Peg at (888) 393-2667 or firstname.lastname@example.org and mention your Asheville Area Chamber membership; she’ll walk you through the process. One Product. One State. Focused on You!
