Lenders One Adds Preferred Vendors for Healthcare and Employee Benefits

August 3, 2015

Competitive Employee Health and Benefit Vendors now on Lenders One Platform: Northgate Benefits and Pareto Captive Services

ST. LOUIS -- August 3, 2015
– The Lenders One® Mortgage Cooperative, a national alliance of independent mortgage bankers, correspondent lenders and suppliers of mortgage products and services, today announced that Northgate Benefits and Pareto Captive Services have been added to the cooperative as preferred vendors.  By partnering with these vendors, Lenders One members will now have the ability to build their own customized and cost effective healthcare and employee benefits programs.

Northgate and Pareto are combining their services to create the health and employee benefit offerings that were introduced during the 2015 Lenders One Summer Conference.

Northgate Benefits, an independent brokerage, will provide the tools for Lenders One members to design individual, non-medical benefit programs including insurance, employee wellness, health risk management and retirement services, as well as access to a total human resources management function.  This includes access to Northgate’s SuiteHR workforce management tool, a web-based database for payroll and human resource management functions such as employee recruitment and training.

Pareto Captive Services will allow members to form or join an employee medical benefit group, allowing them to manage their own health insurance program.  Pareto will assist members in choosing a policy-issuing carrier and in underwriting new and renewal participants, in addition to providing measurement and management tools and reporting focused on the benefits the member selects.

“After payroll, employee benefit and health programs are often the largest single expense for mortgage industry businesses,” said Daniel Goldman, Interim Chief Executive Officer, Lenders One.  “Lenders One members will now be able to develop customized and cost-effective healthcare and employee benefits programs, using the size and strength of our cooperative to negotiate more competitive pricing.”
