How Does It Work?

BeneCap integrates 100% of employee-paid voluntary benefits and programs within a captive’s existing risk management strategies. Designed to protect covered employees by providing additional financial security, the most common are critical illness, accident, hospital indemnity, legal, auto and home; and programs like cell phone coverage, electronic product warranties and ID Theft. BeneCap can diversify a more traditional captive structure, providing you with a solid base of low-risk, third-party premium.

Why BeneCap?

All services are provided by Trion and its partners: plan design, underwriting, reinsurance agreements, administrative services, policy issuance, claim servicing, customer service, marketing, employee communications and enrollment technology. The program is structured as a quota share arrangement and your captive participates on a financial basis only, regardless of captive management affiliation. BeneCap is available to all companies with more than 1,000 employees, without requiring a change in your captive management firm.
