Their knowledge in all size segments and white-glove approach to customer service is a perfect fit to expand our client impact throughout Minnesota and surrounding states.”

"We’re excited to have found a partner in OneDigital where we have shared values on culture and community, and who can enhance our current operational model moving forward. By joining forces, we found the solution to continue to do business as always while providing additional features, resources, and services that we have not been able to offer in the past,” said Gary Walters, Principal, The Fiducia Benefits Group.

In addition to valuing their clients, the Fiducia team shares OneDigital’s passion for serving the community and is committed and proud to support and better the lives of those in need.
