Doug Faulk and Jim Wolfe began Wellington Benefits on March 8, 1993 in Wilmington, NC and for more than two decades the name “Wellington Benefits” was synonymous with quality benefits, dependable service, and client appreciation. Wellington became recognized as a leader in employee benefits in North Carolina and Virginia and was responsible for numerous changes in the way voluntary employee benefits were offered.

Wellington Benefits merged with First Financial Group of America and continued as a wholly owned subsidiary until Wellington was dissolved in 2014.

In 2014, Faulk and Wolfe began NBC Services as the professional enrollment firm to provide exclusive enrollment and support for Wellington clients. Over the next several years, FFGA’s focus changed and prompted Faulk and Wolfe to form NBC Benefits. NBC offers a fresh vision of employee benefits with an emphasis on service and a turn-key solution for employers.

NBC is not a captive company. We are independent and work with excellent rated carriers to select preferred benefits for clients.
