Self-Help Compliance Tools
MBA has developed several self-help compliance tools featuring yes/no questions and informational guidance for our clients. Answering "no" to a question indicates the client may be out of compliance and should seek legal advice. The topics include COBRA, ERISA, FMLA, HIPAA, and USERRA.
MBA offers complementary COBRA service which provides a number of services that are designed to relieve the burden that COBRA currently places on employers*.
5500 Document Preparation

MBA offers employers the choice of providing their employees with access to an MBA sponsored Wellness Benefit to boost employee morale and company goodwill, or implementation of a comprehensive incentive based Wellness Program to help manage health premiums.
MBA has partnered with an innovative technology company that offers an e-commerce portal to leading merchants where employees can earn cash back, incentives and instant rewards just for shopping. From Best Buy and Target to thousands of other retailers, this portal lets employees shop where they’re already shopping online today. Same stores, same merchandise. But now they can leverage the power of cash back shopping to receive a tangible benefit. Employers can position this as an exciting addition to an existing benefits program, at no cost to the employee.
