D)  To create efficiencies!  When you visit the websites you should experience the following:

  1. A simplified and less cluttered format.
  2. The "SiteMap" acts as an index, GPS, for delivering the visitor to their Insurance or Benefits related Sector or Section of Interest.
  3. Specific web pages provide: Directories, the Process for Utilizing the Websites, and suggestions to assist in the Insurance and Decision-Making Process.
