Employee Benefits

Realizing the need for an insurance agency that could not only provide coverage solutions for all types of insurance but also exceed service expectations for all clients, the founding partners of Benchmark Insurance opened its doors in 1982.

Today Benchmark's management team is continuing in the footsteps of the early guiding principle of building and maintaining a trusted relationship with all of our clients. One of the most distinctive ways Benchmark has accomplished this goal is by providing excellent administration and creative solutions for employee benefits. Our passion for excellence has made Benchmark a recognized leader in Central Ohio.

Dedicated to the community and the integrity of the insurance profession, Benchmark Insurance actively participates in the Westerville Chamber of Commerce, the Columbus Chamber of Commerce, Genoa Township Business Association, the Columbus Association of Health Underwriters, the Independent Insurance Agents of Ohio, and the Professional Insurance Agents Association of Ohio.

Our History

“Medication ‘Pre-Authorizations’ can be a real nightmare.  I was blown away when Benchmark Insurance, without solicitation, contacted me to let me know that they had pro-actively got the ball rolling with this process.  It not only showed that they cared, but they had listened and heard my frustration and made a point to come back when the time came, to help me with this process.  This level of service is uncommon and was very much appreciated.” 

—  Greg Scott, CEO,  PXPOHIO
