About Us

As Pekin Life Insurance Company, we have been providing outstanding benefit administration services to our group health insureds since 1965.

Recognizing our long history of expertise in employee benefit administration and our all encompassing commitment to providing service that goes Beyond the expected,® a third party administration unit was created to extend our professional support to businesses that prefer to self-fund their benefits.

About Group Plan Solutions

Group Plan Solutions Benefit Administration, a division of Pekin Life Insurance Company, was established to help guide employers through the maze of health care reform, providing direction in finding the optimal solution to employee benefit needs.

Our GPS staff has many years of experience in matching employers with first-rate benefits and then prudently administering those benefits. Many TPAs focus on how quickly your claims are processed. We focus on making sure that your claims have been examined for ways to save you money, while still making sure your employees are paid the benefits you have promised them. You can trust that we will be as fiscally responsible with your self-funded benefit dollars as we have been with claims we have processed as an insurance company.

You will love our personalized customer service that allows employers and employees to have direct access to a live person. You will not encounter phone trees or overseas customer service representatives when contacting us. All of our highly qualified personnel are located in Pekin, Illinois.
