Benefit Consultant Job Description

Benefits Consultants usually work as independent contractors and provide recommendations to companies regarding employee benefits, such as health insurance or retirement funds. They have an expert understanding of federal and state labor laws and different benefits programs and use various tools to assist employers in creating benefits packages that are favorable for both the employer and the employees.

Most Benefits Consultants don’t work full-time—they offer their services at an hourly rate or receive project-based pay. Companies prefer hiring consultants because they have in-depth knowledge of different benefits, supported by extensive research and their significant experience working with businesses of all sizes and from all industries.
