About Us

Overview

As part of EPIC Insurance Brokers & Consultants (EPIC), Frenkel Benefits is one of the largest independent employee benefit brokerage/consulting and benefit administration/communications firms in the United States.

We are the employee benefits division of Frenkel & Company – an EPIC Company, a full-service independent insurance brokerage firm established in 1878. Frenkel & Company joined forces with EPIC (the 10th largest commercial insurance broker in the nation) in November, 2017. Frenkel Benefits is recognized as one of the top 20 largest benefits consulting firms in the New York area by Crain’s New York Business.

Frenkel Benefits began over 60 years ago as Frenkel’s Life & Benefits department. Since 1992 when Craig Hasday took over the division, Frenkel Benefits has experienced consistent growth, including the acquisition in 2004 of our wellness consulting subsidiary, Onsite Wellness.

Our growth has been strong and well-paced, allowing us to provide superior support to all of our clients. Our senior staff is equally stable and growing as our business expands. Our capabilities and resources have been materially enhanced in becoming a part of EPIC’s national and global Employee Benefits Consulting operations.
