Streamline Your Benefits Administration
Many public sector employers don’t have a dedicated Human Resources department, or have a department that is stretched too thin. This unique challenge makes it difficult to run an employee benefits program, especially when juggling multiple vendors to provide benefits.
American Fidelity has helped nearly 6,000 public sector employers streamline their benefits administration through one provider. We can reduce your administrative burden by administering employee benefits and cost-saving solutions from a single source. With 55 years' experience serving public sector employers, we’re able to easily apply our industry knowledge to your organization.
“American Fidelity has proven its commitment to providing participating municipal members with exceptional personal service. I highly encourage you to explore some of the solutions that the company can offer to your city or town.”

We Have the Expertise
Budget Management for the Public Sector
We know your budget is tight. Because of our extensive local and national knowledge in your industry, we have a broad understanding of tools, options, and best practices others are using to manage costs and save time. For example, we frequently utilize employee education strategies to increase participation in tax-savings solutions such as reimbursement accounts and other Section 125 Plan benefits.
A Single Source for Multiple Needs
Benefits Built with the Public Sector in Mind
Our group benefits, such as disability, critical illness, and gap insurance, are designed with the entire public sector in mind. By looking at the industry as a whole across the country, we are able to design plans and premiums specifically for the public sector. For example, we know your employees may be given generous sick leave, but often don’t have a long-term plan should they be out of work. We designed our disability insurance with elimination periods that coordinate with accrued sick time.
Enrollments Around Your Schedule
We believe that the key to a successful benefit program is employee education. Because your employees don’t work a typical schedule, we build an enrollment schedule around your needs. Our account managers are on-site and available year-after-year to help provide clear and consistent communication through streamlined enrollments.
Experienced Account Managers
Our industry focus allows us to provide a customized strategy to help you achieve your benefit goals.
We see the same employers and employees year after year, and are familiar with how needs change over time.
We reduce your benefits administrative burden and act as an extension of your Human Resources department.
Supporting the Public Sector Through Association Partnerships
We proudly partner with 36 public sector associations and are a strategic partner with the International City/County Management Association (ICMA). These relationships allow us to be a trusted resource for their members and to provide important products, services, and solutions.
We are the Carrier and Provider
American Fidelity is both the carrier and benefits provider. This is an important benefit to public sector employers because it allows us to better manage your benefits education, enrollment, costs, and interaction with your employees. By using one provider, your employees also benefit from using a single online portal to file claims and manage their accounts. We customize benefits for public sector employers and help create a benefits strategy for your entire benefits program.
