American Fidelity Assurance Co.
As healthcare expenses continue to rise, finding benefit options that help you and your employees can be challenging. American Fidelity provides a cost-effective solution by offering Health Flexible Spending Accounts (Health FSAs) for your employees to set aside money on a pre-tax basis to pay for everyday medical expenses.
With increasing deductibles causing larger gaps in health coverage, you may be exploring ways to assist your employees in covering their out-of-pocket expenses. A Health Savings Account (HSA), paired with a qualified High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP), allows your employees to set aside pre-tax dollars to help pay for eligible medical, dental, and vision expenses. Employees own these accounts—meaning funds carry over from year to year.
Supplemental benefits can also provide both you and your employees with financial relief. They can assist in giving you peace of mind, knowing your employees will have coverage when they need it. Complement your major medical plan with options like Disability, Cancer, Accident, Critical Illness, and Life Insurance today. Ultimately, a solid benefits program can help ease your worry and workload, while also helping provide employee job satisfaction.
Nationwide, we serve nearly one million customers and 12,500 employer groups. As a specialist in your industry, American Fidelity can provide you with a different perspective — a different opinion.

As an NCADA member, you may purchase your required dealer bond through Charlotte Insurance. Dealer bonds are arranged through CNA and require minimal application information to be issued. Working with CNA online, Charlotte Insurance is able to issue a bond to an NCADA member within minutes of your request.
In addition to dealer bonds, Charlotte Insurance is authorized through CNA to issue Defective Title Bonds.
