History with School Corporations
Steele has rich history serving educators. Steele was founded in 2000 specifically to serve the education community. Steele began providing insurance services to school corporations in 2000, medical insurance enrollment services in 2008, and affordable care act reporting services in 2015. In 2021, Steele began providing text messaging services, and recently announced the capability for school corporations to begin engaging employees before their hire dates.
Why We’re a Fit For School Corporations
School corporations have complicated benefits. Often, there is one or more bargaining units. You have teachers, non-teachers, administrators, and retirees. Employees may have multiple payroll deduction calendars. Corporations may be in trusts or consortiums. Lastly, schools tend to have specialty payroll systems that are different providers than you see in the private sector.
All of the above factors make school corporations complicated to administer. At Steele, we understand these complications and that makes us a valuable partner for school corporations.
