At BenefitSource Insurance Services Inc., we are celebrating their third year of being the exclusive Dave Ramsey Endorsed Local Provider (ELP) for home and auto insurance in Southern California. But what does that really mean?

As a Dave Ramsey ELP, we are held at a higher standard of excellence to ensure their clients are getting the same advice that Ramsey would give with the Heart of the Teacher approach. As a personal money management expert and an extremely popular national radio personality, Dave Ramsey is America’s trusted voice on money and business. The ELP Program was created to fulfill a need of finding a network of trustworthy and competent advisors who offer exceptional customer service and are held accountable by Ramsey’s team and customer reviews.

Ramsey has a 45-person team that works with every ELP to make sure they meet the programs standards, give the customer great advice and educate with Ramsey’s Heart of a Teacher approach to make each client feel as comfortable as possible. Having the Heart of a Teacher also means that ELPs agree to work with clients to educate them first on the coverage they need then find the best price.

“We are honored to be selected as Dave Ramsey’s home and auto insurance ELP and we take great pride in this endorsement. Being a Dave Ramsey ELP isn’t easy; it’s hard work because ELPs are held to a higher standard of excellence,” said Chad Spaide, President of BenefitSource.

In addition, every Dave Ramsey ELP’s performance is evaluated monthly to make sure clients are getting the best agent possible. Today, an overwhelming majority of ELP’s clients highly recommend the ELP service to their friends and family.

This is a certification that is earned by insurance agencies, and cannot be purchased. ELPs do pay a fee to cover program maintenance and employment costs, but Dave Ramsey’s endorsement is earned by providing quality service to our clients. And once earned, ELPs are held to a higher standard of excellence in order to maintain the certification.

When you work with a Dave Ramsey ELP, you can be confident that you’re getting the same type of advice that Dave himself would give.
