Maximum Benefit Advantage

Maximum Benefit is administered by Johnston Group - one of Canada’s leading Third Party Administrators (TPA). As a TPA our specialty is the administration of group insurance plans. From plan design, eligibility maintenance, to Health, Dental and Short Term Disability claim adjudication, our staff are there to help you and your employees with the day-to-day administration of your program.

Why should you choose Johnston Group to administer your group benefits plan?

One enrolment 

Choose benefits that best meet your needs from leading insurers like Assumption Life, Desjardins Insurance, Equitable Life, Great-West Life, Manulife, RBC Insurance, Sun Life and The Co-operators. Should you wish to change insurers for a benefit – making the change is as easy as flipping a switch. We make the changes transparently. There is no re-enrolment.

Plan flexibility

You will insure your Life and Disability benefits, choose any combination of Maximum Benefit's insured or self-funded Health and Dental options, and then add ancillary benefits to your program from specialty insurers – all on one consolidated billing that streamlines your payroll deductions and accounting.

Cash control

Unlike others in the marketplace, Johnston Group does not require an initial or opening deposit, or any other monies in advance for self-funded benefits. We pay for claims and recover the amount from your account the following week. This gives you ultimate control as you review the paid claims report before any fund transfers take place.
