Piedmont began as a favor to a friend in 2008. A Voluntary Agent lost a payroll account when his client's company was bought out, and the new ownership was unable to payroll deduct for voluntary benefits. Not wanting to move employees from premiums that were deducted weekly to monthly direct drafts, he turned to a friend in the banking business for help. His request was simple - make it feel like payroll deduction for the employees even though it isn't for the employer.
Pioneering New Ways to Pay
Piedmont's goal is to make it easier for your prospects to become policyholders. Piedmont process allows you to write payroll business even when the employer cannot or will not payroll deduct. And it's the easiest part of the overall enrollment process.
