Our Philosophy & Process
EMPLOYEE BENEFIT PLANS
Consider this statistic: over 80% of all businesses now buy or make available some form of insurance for their employees. That’s exactly why insurance is considered a fact of life. A necessary cost of doing business. It isn’t a question of “if” anymore. It’s “what kind” and “how much”.
As more and more businesses buy it, insurance plans have proliferated to such a point that just deciding which one is right for your situation isn’t easy any more.
There’s remarkable spread in costs. Policy provisions vary all over the lot, especially in health insurance. In fact, there are so many variations that cost alone cannot be the only consideration in selecting the right program. Agents change. Rates go up. Often dividends fail to materialize to help pay premiums. Factors such as experience rating or pooling, retroactive vs. non-retroactive contracts greatly affect costs. Unions push for higher benefits. The competitive situation for attracting good people may change. And laws change, too.
Those benefit premiums that were incidental years ago aren’t so incidental any more. Those dollars affect monthly cash flow and have a direct impact on the bottom line. Small and medium size businesses need exactly what they can’t afford: a staff of experts.
Clearly a better way of handling the whole area of insurance benefits is needed. And it is available to your business now. The services of an independent insurance broker who can analyze, organize and put your program out for competitive bids. An objective third party who can evaluate, shield you from time consuming calls from insurance agents, and evaluate coverage properly. A professional who can monitor and service.
LYTLE Associates is that kind of company.
We are independent insurance brokers licensed in the State of New York. Our allegiance is to our clients. To you. Not to an insurance company. Our compensation comes from fees. Commissions are credited against the fee should you purchase coverage through us. This gives us a unique objectivity.

Because this is our business and expertise, we have the staff of specialists you need to design and service insurance plans such as medical, life, long-term disability, short-term accident and sickness pay, voluntary benefits, business travel coverage.
