In 2009 ABC and Fringe Benefit Group (FBG) partnered to provide prevailing wage contractors with a compliant 401k program called The Contractors Plan. With more than 500 members as current clients the program has been a success, especially in terms of helping ABC members bid more competitively on prevailing wage jobs.

Fringe Benefit Group and ABC are now expanding on this success to bring all member firms employee benefits solutions specifically designed and built for hourly employee populations. FBG brings ABC member firms government compliance expertise and ease of administration. FBG is responsible for all product quotation, client and member service, billing and premium remittance, online enrollment and eligibility management and more.

The American Worker is focused on providing an affordable benefit package, communication and enrollment services, and unique billing and premium payment options for hourly and part-time workers. Brian's efforts have created a successful business opportunity for Fringe Benefit Group in addition to the company's expertise in government contractor health and welfare and retirement plans.
