We create benefits solutions that fit your business

SIG is an employee benefits firm dedicated to partnering with clients and delivering exceptional customer service. Today, we have over 60 licensed employees who service more than 400 corporate clients with employees located nationally and internationally, as well as engaging programs focused solely on the health and wellness of employees. In 2016, SIG merged with 23 like-minded, high-performing independent firms across the United States to form Alera Group, the nation’s 15th largest independent insurance agency and the 7th largest privately held benefits firm. This provides us access to resources, technical expertise and best practices of a larger national firm, while maintaining the personal local service employers need.

The inspirational basis for SIG’s operating business principles is: “If you take care of Baltimore, Baltimore will take care of you.” This philosophy has instilled itself in the SIG culture and practice of all employees, and has made SIG one of the leading benefits consultants in the country. SIG has years of industry experience, which has given us an edge over the competition in the vast wealth of knowledge and resources we have gathered. Our employees are passionate about helping and forming long-lasting relationships with others, and when you partner with SIG, we become a true extension of your company.


SIG goes the extra mile to help navigate the healthcare system and marketplace for our clients in order to advise them on the creation of comprehensive benefits plans that align with their core values to maximize their investment while controlling their costs. Our team-oriented approach allows us to become an extension of our clients’ HR departments. Through our vast knowledge and resource base, we keep our clients educated and well informed with the ever-changing healthcare regulations and marketplace.
