2017 is an exciting time to be a member of NCRA. The Association has announced a plethora of new benefits designed to save members money on a variety of products and services through a long-time partnership with Mercer and a newly established relationship with Windfall Savings.

As of Jan. 1, 2017, Mercer Health & Benefits Administration will offer cyber liability insurance through Edgewater Holdings. The insurance is designed to mitigate losses from a variety of cyber incidents, including data breaches, network damage, and third-party lawsuits due to loss of privacy. Mercer has provided NCRA members with customized insurance plans for 50 years.

Also new to the member benefits basket beginning Jan. 1 is access to savings on dozens of products and services through a new partnership between NCRA and Windfall Savings. Windfall is one program that administers discounts for 16 suppliers with no cost to sign up.

NCRA members can easily buy in-store or online from Office Depot by using a personalized purchase card provided by Windfall Savings. Discounts include:

  • up to 80 percent off Office Depot’s business select catalog

  • additional savings on 93,000 products discounted below retail cost

Other Office Depot products and services include emailed monthly specials, access to coupons online, and discounts on photocopy services.

“There is nothing more valuable than the benefits a professional organization can provide its members,” said NCRA’s Executive Director and CEO Mike Nelson, CAE. “NCRA’s new partnership with Windfall Savings and the addition of cyber insurance through Mercer reflects the Association’s strong commitment to helping its members grow their businesses, and we are excited about the savings that both of these companies offer.”

The Windfall Savings partnership also includes savings on FedEx services, including:

  • ground parcel service with no minimum shipping requirements
  • up to 54 percent off the list rate on select priority overnight and standard overnight deliveries within the United States

Other discounts are also available on the Express Saver, select ground services, and international services offered by FedEx.
