About Us

HANYS Benefit Services (HBS), an affiliate of the Healthcare Association of New York State (HANYS), has been providing retirement services and employer–sponsored group insurance programs to leading healthcare and other not-for-profit organizations for more than 40 years. HBS tailors its programs almost exclusively for the healthcare community. We service a diverse membership including hospitals, health systems, nursing homes, long-term care facilities, and other healthcare providers. Since the 1960s, we have helped our clients meet their employees' retirement benefit needs by offering the right combination of plan design, investment advisory services, and educational programs.

In 2000, we formed Strategic Benefit Services (SBS) in response to a growing need expressed to us by non-HANYS organizations. We are pleased to offer many of the same advisory services and programs and, given our roots, we have maintained a strong concentration in the not-for-profit, healthcare community.

A commitment to high–quality, independent, objective, and cost-effective retirement plan management, together with a dedication to customer service, is a philosophy that has worked for our clients. Today, our total retirement fund assets exceed $4.6 billion; more than 90,000 individuals in more than 200 organizations across the state are covered under our programs. Due to the scale of our benefits group, we are able to offer unique products negotiated with various insurance companies. For these organizations, HBS, SBS, and its affiliates are the advisor of choice.

All plan advisory, consulting, participant education, and investment services are provided through Healthcare Community Securities Corporation (HCSC), an SEC Registered Investment Advisor and FINRA designated Broker-Dealer.
