Group Insurance

A dynamic brokerage service

ACRV conducts a thorough analysis of your needs by considering your expectations first and then we make recommendations. We conduct the market study, negotiate financial arrangements and prepare a renewal projection report based on historical claims from previous years of your group. Once your choice is made, we set up the implementation of the plan to ensure proper operation and remain available to you throughout the year to vouch the quality of service.

 

When setting up the program, employees can receive a detailed presentation in which are explained the operation and benefits of the chosen program if you wish. In addition, periodic follow-ups with the employer and the members are always available.

 

A second professional opinion of your program

ACRV offers a second professional opinion service of your program. Business leaders have every reason to enjoy this service even if they only get a confirmation that their structure of program is appropriate.  They also get an alternative in case of difficulties with the broker involved in their file.

 

This option may be used at any time during the year since the renewal date of their policy is simply a rating revision date. In fact, your policy is renewed from month to month. It demands no more than twenty minutes for the client to prepare documentation required to execute this study.

Group Retirement Services

 

Your best access to products on the market

 

 

Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP): Employees receive the full benefits of an individual RRSP, while enjoying the gains from the collective administration.

 

Deferred Profit Sharing Plan (DPSP): The employer distributes a portion of its profits by contributing to the account of its employees. The employer contributions can be tailored to each participant and they do not suffer from the "payroll taxes".

Retirement plan contribution plans, traditional or simplified: The employer pays its employees a plan contribution that was predetermined, and not a variable fee based retirement benefits. Known for its simplicity, the simplified pension plan (SIPP) is ideal for small businesses.

Voluntary Retirement Savings Plans (VRSP): Quebec’s Government wants to encourage Quebecers to save more for their retirement while making it easier to access user-friendly and affordable savings programs. That’s why it adopted a law in December 2013 that will gradually require all employers who have a business in Quebec with five or more employees to offer a group retirement savings program for their staff. Employers will be required to choose a voluntary retirement savings plan (VRSP) provider, based on certain terms and conditions.
