CSS renews expands alliance with Newtek
MADISON, Wis. (1/19/12)--CUNA Strategic Services Inc. (CSS) has renewed and expanded its relationship with The Small Business Authority, powered by Newtek Business Services, to include health and benefit insurance products.

Since 2003, CSS has worked with The Small Business Authority to provide small business services. Now, credit union small-business members will have access to group health, life, group accidental death and dismemberment (AD&D), short-term disability (STD), long-term disability (LTD), dental and vision, as well as individual and family health.

"Credit unions can meet an important need of their small-business members through this new suite of health and benefits products," said Bill Cheney, president/CEO of the Credit Union National Association and CSS. "Our long-standing alliance with The Small Business Authority provides an ideal platform for credit unions and small businesses to be successful."

The strategic alliance relationship includes products such as small-business loans, credit- and debit-card processing services, Web-hosting services, connectivity, data storage, security, network infrastructure, business tax services, Web-based payroll services, and accounts receivable financing.

"This is probably the most important product and service offering that we will be involved with in 2012, and working with CSS as well as credit unions to solve their members' issues surrounding health insurance is an honor and a challenge," said Barry Sloane  CEO/chairman of the The Small Business Authority. "Never before have credit union members and Americans been so challenged to protect their health and families."
