Who We Are

In 1968, Glenn Pierce recognized the lack of benefit products and services that met the unique needs and challenges of North Carolina’s public workforce. Committed to bringing custom, long-term solutions to school districts and other public organizations, joined then by sons Donald and Chris, the Pierce family founded Pierce Group Benefits in 2001.

Since, it has become apparent that other public organizations face similar needs and challenges and, with the same focus and passion our agency was founded on, Pierce Group Benefits has grown to become a leading regional provider of employee benefits programs for public school systems, government agencies, community colleges, and charter schools across North Carolina, Virginia, and South Carolina.

Today, now led by son Chris, Pierce Group Benefits’ focus remains the same: delivering cost-saving, efficiency-enhancing, elevated benefits solutions to our clients and their employees. In December of 2021, Pierce Group Benefits joined the AssuredPartners, Inc. family of companies. This new partnership enables our team to continue the tradition we have for excellent service, product innovation, and cutting-edge solutions; and with access to additional resources and leverage, we are able to continue to negotiate competitive rates and plans for our clients.


Pierce Group Benefits is the leading regional provider of employee benefits to the Public Sector. Pierce Group’s buying power is a tremendous advantage to the employees we service. We are able to consistently enhance our clients’ benefits packages a number of ways, often increasing the benefits while reducing or maintaining current rates.

170000+ Employees Serviced
220+ Clients Served

Some nice things people are saying about us:

Our employees have greatly benefited from the increased offerings provided to them as well as the additional offerings they are able to sign up for at reasonable rates. Their team is always pleasant, responsive, and thorough with administration and staff. We look forward to continuing our working relationship with Pierce Group Benefits.
