Books by Douglas Pinnell:

Douglas’ goal in writing Group Benefits Exposed is to expose some of the myths about group benefits plans. It’s an unfortunate reality that consumers are often kept in the dark about how benefits plans work. The result is higher costs, a low return on employee payroll costs, and distrust between advisor and client. When all parties truly understand how plans can be optimized, they can work more effectively as a team for everyone’s benefit.
