Stratford is more than just a broker.
We’re a strategic partner with a wealth of industry insight and a host of knowledge and resources. Think of us as an active member of the team, one with a proven track record and market-savvy expertise.
In the early 90s, Dan said to Jeff, “there’s a better way to take care of our clients.” Those few words from that brief conversation became the forward-thinking foundation for Stratford that still guides us today in our practice areas of employee benefits and human resources. The Stratford Financial Group, Inc. and Stratford Employer Services, LLC. were founded in 1997 and have become one of the area's leading firms providing group insurance consulting, online benefits administration, compliance, human resources support workforce management and payroll processing.
Our mission is to passionately maintain a continued sense of responsibility to employers and their employees. We strive to be first-to-market with new products, new ideas, and new strategies that provide time and money saving opportunities. We are perennial industry leaders in understanding and advising our clients in legislative and regulatory affairs, allowing for a consistently secure sense of employee benefits and human resources compliance and administration.
We accomplish our mission by tapping into the education, training, creativity, and experience of our dedicated team of employees. In other words, we utilize our people to provide a better experience for your people.
We are proud that our highly educated team maintains the following designations:

As a business owner myself, I know how difficult it is to build a successful business. Employee benefits (specifically health insurance) is one of the top five expenses of a business. I love working with business owners, CFOs and HR managers to build a benefits package that best suits their employees and their families’ needs. Professionally, nothing is more gratifying than hearing from a client that the employees love their employee benefits program and appreciate working with my support team.
