Our benefits provider needs to be a trusted partner who can deliver these benefits effectively, efficiently, and professionally. We have found Portico to be best-in-class on all of these fronts. They have earned our trust not only by delivering our benefits in a cost-effective way, but also — as a ministry of the church — by approaching these benefits holistically, within the larger context of a life of faith.
