lquoteI have recently gotten to know Ed MacConnell through my LeTip group in Huntingdon Valley and as result, his company, Total Benefit Solutions, Inc. . Ed has shown me and my clients that their firm offers the highest level of integrity, knowledge and service available.

I am confident when I refer my clients and associates to Ed for their Life, Health and Disability services that they will be treated with the same level of care I would offer them.  Ed provides a menu of options that suit the clients preferences giving them a chance to choose which best suits them.
