In January 2012, Chartis and SunAmerica Financial Group formed a significant new player in the benefits market by combining American General Life Companies’ Benefit Solutions division with the Medical Excess and @Work groups from Chartis Corporate Benefits division. The combined entity targets the employee and affinity group markets, and serves as a one-stop solution for today’s changing benefits marketplace for groups of all sizes. The product suite includes life/AD&D, BTA/accident, universal and term life, dental, vision, limited healthcare, medical reimbursement, stop-loss, organ transplant, group hospital, group and personal disability, critical illness, accident and cancer insurance. This broad and diverse portfolio provides limitless opportunities to create flexible benefit offerings suitable for all sizes and budgets, and the combined underwriting, distribution and sales strengths of American General and Chartis will provide further strength and differentiation in the marketplace.
In order to optimize those strengths, the organization needs processes, communication and internal services that meet and/or exceed the expectations of today’s market and those of markets we endeavor to serve. By bringing the best thinking and experience on work process management together with best talent in the industry in the changing benefits market, we can create a company poised to handle significant growth and profitability. One of the needs identified through this merger is the need for a new Admin platform. This position is a result of that need.
