I have always used the EIN finder to aid in responses
to bureau criticisms; however, now that our company is in run-off mode for
commercial business, it has been that much more helpful. This is due to the
fact that our staff is now so small, and that we have closed contracts with
a lot of our old commercial agents, so the EIN Finder has been a lifesaver
in some cases, helping us to avoid numerous fines.

-Marnie M. Chase, Accounting Specialist - CNA
I have used the search via EIN option on FreeERISA.com.
I find this to be a very useful way to research 5500 information for my
clients. It provides a way to directly find the Plan(s) that I otherwise may
not find by Plan name. The EIN is most often a constant to the plan where
the Plan Name and/or Employer Name can change. I am positive that I will
continue to use this option in the future.

I use the FEIN finder daily most of the time. It has
been a fantastic tool and has made my job that much easier.
-Tracy Newcomb, ASR-Comm., Auto Division - Chubb
Instead of calling the company to get the FEIN number,
I found... FreeERISA convenient & very helpful. I absolutely will
recommended this website.
-Nelia Miranda, CSR - The Hartford
I work for The Hartford Insurance Company as an
Underwriting Assistant in the Commercial New Business department. It is my
job to rate, quote and issue commercial policies. We need to enter the
insured's FEIN into our systems to quote and issue policies. More often than
not, this information is not on the application sent in by the agency. I use
your EIN Finder database on a daily basis, and more often than not, I find
the information I am looking for. It makes my job a lot easier, and it is
just one less piece of information we need to request from the agent.
My coworkers and I really love your website... Thank
you for providing this service, and keep up the great work!
-Tracey Baker, Underwriting Assistant - The Hartford
I work for Chubb Insurance and my department is
responsible for commercial auto in our company. The EIN is often needed for
issuance of our auto policies or ID cards. Your website makes it so simple
to obtain. You just type in the name of the insured and hit "search." I have
found it to be very useful and a time saver!
-Debbie Talarico, Commercial Auto Specialist/ROC -
Chubb Group of Insurance Companies
We have many producers in our territory contacting
companies with in-force NQDC plans to ensure they are in compliance with a
regulation just passed this year. Using the EIN Finder allows our producers
to get the contact information for those companies to make the initial call
or to send a letter with materials. This service has been a great tool for
us, since in many cases, we only have the EIN and the name of the company.
Thanks to FreeERISA.com, it has made obtaining the additional info needed,
very simple. Thanks!
-Mark Rocklin, Internal Wholesaler - Pacific Life
I find the EIN Finder an invaluable resource when it
comes to finding FEIN's for auto policies. Some policies will go from year
to year with no response from the insured when we ask them to provide the
FEIN's. So I'll search your database and about 95% of the time, I'll find
what I'm looking for and the policy goes out with current and accurate
information on it. It's a handy tool that I use almost daily. Very helpful!
James Bartlette, Customer Service Consultant - The
The EIN Finder that FreeERISA.com offers has been an
incredibly useful tool in my opinion. I appreciate your e-mail, and suggest
that this search tool be referenced by anyone in the insurance field, to
insure accuracy. It is efficient and expedient as well.

I use the EIN Finder for Workers' Comp and Auto

I think that EIN Finder has been a great asset to
keeping our clients shipment moving and not held up at the U.S. Border when
the information in not on their paperwork.

Our Customs Brokerage Firm has found EIN Finder to be
a fantastic tool and an enormous help in our business.
-William Scazlo, Broker - Great Lakes Customs
Yes indeed, this search engine really helps us out, we
export international shipments for our clients and one of the criteria's is
reporting a shipper's EIN number to Customs. At times the clients forget to
give us their EIN number and it's after hours thus we cannot talk to them
therefore EIN Finder helps us help our clients!

The EIN database has proven to be very useful to me.
As a CPA I deal with several different companies as well as there EIN's.
This... service has allowed me to quickly find much more then just a
company's EIN, other information includes industry and address. Thanks for
the... service and I will continue to make good use of it.
-Brian Sauers, CPA
The EIN Finder is a an excellent tool for our pension
administration business. We use the EIN Finder to confirm the correct
numbers for the Form 5500 filings. In addition, on takeover cases, the EIN
Finder is very useful in determining if Trust EIN's have been properly
secured. FreeERISA is one of the most valuable internet tools in our office.
-Richard F. Etling CLU, ChFC - Qualified Pension
We use your database to print 5500 Forms of some of
our clients when we need to evidence the Plan is a qualified ERISA Plan.
Recently, when I tried to pull up a client's 5500 I couldn't seem to get one
using any part of their name so I saw the link to use their EIN and tried
there, it pulled it up immediately. It is so much faster going to
FreeERISA.com rather than bothering our clients, the few times someone asks
us for proof of ERISA qualification. Thank you for the wonderful service.
-Carolyn Rice, Subrogation Specialist - Benefit
Administrative Systems, L.L.C.
I was having trouble locating a company by their name,
but had their EIN#, by using the EIN finder I was able to locate the company
quick and easy.
-Ben Bartel, Consultant - Mutual of America
In order to prepare the 5500 Schedule D, we are
required to detail the EIN and plan numbers associated with any common or
collective trusts that the company participates. We ask for this information
from our investment managers, but it is often incomplete. Therefore, the EIN
search tool was very useful to confirm that the information provided is
complete and accurate.
Mark W. DeBoer, Senior Benefits Analyst - CenterPoint Energy, Inc.
The EIN Finder database was most helpful in locating
EINs for charitable contributions that several of my clients had made to
501(c)3 qualified charities. I hope to use this database in future as need
-Warren Goldman, CPA
I have used the EIN Finder for a number of years.
Working in the pension industry I find that I do a lot of research into
EIN's and Trust EIN's, as sometimes an employer will give us inaccurate
information. The Pension industry requires a separate EIN for the retirement
plan, and employers sometimes provide us the "employer's" identification
number rather than the Trust identification number. If an employer had been
using their employer identification number for the trust, my responsibility
is to request a separate EIN for the trust from the IRS. I have researched
the internet and have not found a comparable "free" product out there. I
will continue to use the EIN finder as a valuable tool in successfully
assisting me in my job.

FreeERISA has helped us to
improve our controls regarding data accuracy of the vendors that are
created and maintained in our system.
It is an important tool in
our daily work, since one of our main tasks is to create "vendor accounts"
in our Global Supplier Data Base. With this tool we can validate sensitive
and unique information that clearly identifies a vendor, such as the tax
identification number and in other level the name, physical address and
We can also find other useful functions on
this page such as the percentage of the number of times a company name
appears under the same EIN on government files, so we can know which will be
the primary name a vendor uses for legal matters.
For all these reasons we are more than
glad to be using FreeERISA's services to validate the information we upload
into our systems to check data accuracy and validity.

EIN Finder was easy to use and gave me the info in

I use EIN Finder everyday. I find it accurate , up to
date and extremely helpful in my business. It immediately confirms the Fed
Tax ID of customers , their head office address, and phone number. It is an
important element we use to determine the legitimacy of a customer!!!
-Charles Katz, President - Printerm Datascribe, Inc.
It's been a very useful tool for our sales team...
There are many times when we have missing EIN numbers, and your EIN finder
has enabled us to get that info timely to ensure sales transactions move
thru the system.

Banks & Mortgage Companies
I work for a large banking company that serves as
trustee for over 2000 Defined Contribution plans, and as part of my duties
here, I complete many Form 5500 filings. Some of those are newly converted
plans, where we did not complete their 5500s in previous years. If these
clients fail to send us copies of prior years' returns, the freeERISA.com
site has been a lifesaver. Especially in cases where they may have changed
their name, or if there were plan mergers upon conversion, the site's EIN
Finder comes in really handy in tracking down those plans. It's a great
feature, keep it on there!
-Kris Hargesheimer, Compliance Specialist- Wells Fargo
My company uses your site as part of our quality
control process for mortgage lending. We verify the existence of a
borrower's employer via the EIN number. Having the ability to do this simple
verification reduces the time we must spend for QC.
