B&CE has been providing employee benefits for over 70 years. We began in 1942 by creating simple financial products that meet people’s needs, and that’s how we’ve run our business ever since.

We provide simple, good value products and services and our first class support and customer service has won awards.

We go that extra mile to ensure we are.
