About Us

Group of Business People in a Conference Room


When we opened our doors in 1976, our founder Mike Sheridan had a simple goal: to provide underinsured Florida public schools employees with the benefits they needed. Since those humble beginnings, we have grown significantly to become an institution and innovator in the employee benefits industry. We are experts in benefits consulting and administration for organizations in both public and private sectors nationwide. From our headquarters in Tallahassee, FL, we provide large-scale employers with a comprehensive suite of benefits services including brokerage of core and voluntary products, benefits education and communication, enrollment management, benefits administration and compliance.



We stood tall and adapted to change while healthcare reform altered the landscape of the benefits industry. We have you covered for the future when it comes to the industry’s most prominent recent developments, including private healthcare exchanges, ACA compliance, telemedicine and more. No communications trend goes unnoticed by us. We use the latest in cutting-edge technology – mobile apps, interactive guides, user experience (UX) materials and more – to market benefits to your multi-generational, ethnically diverse workforce.

Charitable giving and community involvement are key components of FBMC’s culture. We actively participate in the local Tallahassee community and make regular efforts to support charities including The Ronald McDonald House, Distinguished Young Gentlemen of America, The Shelter, Eldercare Services, and Big Bend Hospice. Our charitable activities extend to our clients too. We view our clientele as family here at FBMC – that’s why we sponsor local events and charities in our clients’ communities.

FBMC is more than just a benefits manager.
