One of our favorite things to do at SBS is to help our clients save money. One of the ways in which we are able to do that is with the services we provide in the home. We are able to utilize all of the companies we represent to evaluate our client’s current situation and help them get set up with coverage that fits both their needs AND their budget.
Another great way we like to help our clients save money is through some of the links we’ve listed below. We’ve included 12 programs that (depending on your current situation) may be a way for you to receive certain discounts, benefits, and/or other assistance you may need.
