WHO IS CORNERSTONE?
Cornerstone Benefits Management (located in Lake Barrington, IL) is the plan administrator for your benefits plan. We are here to serve the IBEW Local 197 and its members with every aspect of the plan, including:
- Education/Enrollment Services – Cornerstone educates members about coverage options during open enrollments, and assists members to enroll over the phone. Cornerstone does not cold call members.
- Payment Processing – Local 197 plays NO role in the collection of premiums. Members pay for coverage out of their own bank account through a secure ACH process, Cornerstone then remits the premiums to the insurance carrier.
- Claims Advocacy/Personalized Service – Members submit claims by phone to Cornerstone. Members are assigned a dedicated Cornerstone Claims Advocate to help them navigate their claim.
Who We Are
Cornerstone Benefits Management specializes in working exclusively with unions across America to provide comprehensive and affordable group insurance plans to their members.
Why We Do What We Do
We know the hardships that union families go through when burdened with an unexpected illness, injury or death. Too often there are minimal benefits being provided. We strive to shift the financial risk these claims create away from the member and his/her family to an insurance carrier.
