Colonial Life - Alaska

Three Bears Alaska, Wasilla, AK

"Switching to Colonial Life is the best thing that Three Bears has ever done in terms of voluntary benefits.  The Colonial team has always been thoroughly professional and super responsive.  On top of that, the switch to Colonial Life enabled us to offer better products and better pricing to our employees.  Working with Colonial has been a huge win for Three Bears and especially for our employees.”

Steve Mierop - CFO - 2013.

Arctic Controls, Inc., Anchorage, AK 

"We had Aflac for a number of years, and never knew there was another option for us, until Colonial called.  The switch was easy and my employees are happy.  I like the "team" approach with Colonial Life and it was obvious that similar products could be provided by Colonial at better rates and with better features.  We're happy we made the switch!"

Scott Stewart, President - May 2013

South Peninsula Hospital, Homer, AK

“South Peninsula Hospital was pleased to learn that there was another voluntary benefit carrier in Alaska.  SPHOSP replaced Aflac with Colonial Life mid-year and believe we made an excellent choice in making Colonial Life our voluntary benefit carrier for our over 300 eligible employees.”

Arctic Refrigeration, Anchorage, AK

“We had another voluntary benefit carrier in place but when we evaluated the rates/features/benefits, we have now decided to exclusively work with Colonial as our “voluntary benefit carrier of choice” and we are happy our broker brought Colonial Life to our attention many years ago.”

Bobby Gordon - President – 2013

Circle Plumbing, Anchorage, AK

​"In reviewing our voluntary plans in place, a thorough evaluation showed significant savings for the employees without sacrificing feature/benefits.  We are pleased that we made the "switch" and encourage other employers to check out the Colonial Life team in Midtown."

Bean’s Cafe, Anchorage, AK

“Bean’s Café wanted a voluntary benefit “partner” that was focused on service and was in alignment with our core values of service, professionalism and attending to the needs of the company and our employees.  We eagerly brought Colonial Life in to solve billing issues as Colonial Life works as a “team” and delivered a PERFECT deduction report.”

Joan Fisher - Interim Executive Director – 2013

Builders Millwork Supply, Anchorage, AK

“Back in 2013, Builders Millwork met with Colonial Life and decided that they had excellent voluntary benefit products and were priced more competitively than our current carrier, Aflac.  Their team has been prompt to provide service and we are very happy that we chose Colonial Life as our voluntary benefits company.  We encourage other employers to trust the Colonial Life team.  It has been a “win-win” situation for our company and our employees.”

Kara Strong, Bookkeeper – 2015

Circle Plumbing & Heating, Anchorage, AK

 “Colonial is a powerhouse in the voluntary benefit world and fortunately, their Anchorage Midtown Office can now provide employers here with a choice.  In reviewing our voluntary plans in place, a thorough evaluation showed significant savings for the employees without sacrificing features/benefits.  We are pleased that we made the switch and encourage other employers to check out the Colonial Life team in Midtown.”

Tammy Wondzell - Insurance Administrator - 2015

Weaver Brothers- Anchorage 

“There was absolutely no issues, challenges or risks moving our supplemental benefits from AFLAC to Colonial Life. Pamela and her team are truly experts and saved our work force over $40,000 by providing our employees only policies that they needed and were relevant to their lives. We are very happy with the customer service and professionalism that we received from Colonial Life, thank you for all you do!”

 Terri Jerue – HR Manager - 2016

Scan Home, Anchorage, AK

"At first I was skeptical of switching our voluntary benefits to a new provider.  But after examining Colonial’s proposal, and realizing that our rates would be somewhat less coupled with more benefit options, along with the responsiveness of the Colonial team, we made the change and have been satisfied ever since.”

​Carl Propes, Owner - 2016

ASCI - Anchorage 

“Our employees value the Colonial Life voluntary benefits that are offered to them.  Pamela’s team has figured out how to enroll employees face-to-face, through co-browse, even online with unique enrollment options that are cutting edge yet personal.  After the sale, their focus on service is what sets them apart from other voluntary carriers we have worked with.”

 Doug John – HR Generalist - 2016


 Galena City School District - Galena

“Galena City School District made the switch to Colonial Life in August of 2015 for voluntary and flexible spending.  Our employees received more flexible coverage options and, in many cases, their premium were less than they were paying.  More importantly, they answer their phones in their Midtown Anc Office and we appreciate the responsiveness.”
