The following information appears only because this entity has hit my radar and has raised a concern and I do not want to lose this information. I’m keeping it handy in case issues appear in the future.
United Employee Benefits Group has come up a few times recently. A comment was just added today by someone that claims they are sending out the same debt relief fax as was sent out by National Employee Benefits Group.
United Employee Benefits Group is a financial resolution organization staffed by today’s top financial professionals in asset based and non asset based risk management. With more than 20 years experience in banking and mortgage banking related fields; United Employee Benefits Group has the industry leading financial programs which allow for the restructuring of financial strategies to better serve the evolving circumstances of today’s borrowers. – Source

There is no BBB listing for this company.
The office address listed is for a virtual office. – Source
There is no registered company in Texas or California under the name United Employee Benefits Group.
Even information on their own home page does not add up.
It is important to note that United Employee Benefits financial programs originated as a financial service to borrowers/clients of Benchmark mortgage (Winton, Ca.). Through unprecedented demand for mortgage restructuring alternatives and the need for national solutions to overcome borrower defaults, United Employee Benefits was elevated as its own free standing national entity in 2008 to meet the growing demands of the national banking crisis.
In 2009, the entire Benchmark Mortgage Branch (Winton CA.) became the operational management of United Employee Benefits and its financial services program.
But they they say:
United Employee Benefits Groups CEO is the former Branch Partner and Branch Manager (Winton, CA.) of the nationally respected mortgage banking operation of Benchmark Mortgage.
So are they formerly with the mortgage company or currently with them?
Then there is this relationship with Benchmark Mortgage, who the site they link to claims they are located in Texas. – Source
A search of Texas business records found only companies named Benchmark Mortgage to not be in good standing.
The domain, benchmarkmortgagebank.com, that they rely on to point out their legitimacy is owned by:
PO Box 61359
Sunnyvale, CA 94088
Interestingly he’s the same guy that also owns the domain name of the National Employee Benefits Group that was also sending out the fax I show in this article.
None of this adds up and makes me very suspicious. My advice is if you are contacted by United Employee Benefits Group – RUN AWAY.
