COLUMBIA, S.C. (April 5, 2016) — Colonial Life broker customers can now take advantage of benefits administration at no ongoing cost available from Zero PEPMTM, a new solution through benefits administration software firm Common Census. Zero PEPM eliminates the per-employee-per-month cost for benefits administration.

“Our broker customers and their human resource clients are going to love this new opportunity,” said Marianne Adams, assistant vice president of enrollment at Colonial Life, which has worked with Common Census for more than a decade. “Eliminating the per-employee charges will help bring Colonial Life’s products and solutions to more broker customers with more competitive pricing.”

Common Census provides high-quality software for benefits administration plus Affordable Care Act-required exports, file feeds and more. The company has revolutionized benefits administration pricing with Zero PEPM, eliminating license fees or per-employee-per-month charges, which are expensive for both employers and brokers.

“The Common Census Benefits Operating System® is designed for companies like Colonial Life,” said Stephanie Whitman, marketing manager at Common Census. “Colonial Life’s products are easy to use in our system, plus brokers can enroll any product from medical plans to administrative plans. The continued carrier adoption of the Zero PEPM pricing model proves brokers have been waiting for this type of solution.”
