BROOKFIELD, Wis. (12/7/07)--CheckFree announced that it has made an agreement with The Allstate Corp. to distribute electronic bills to Allstate customers. Allstate customers can receive their bills through more than 3,000 electronic billing and payment websites powered by CheckFree. Customers can receive their bills from Allstate to their preferred financial institution or credit union. Electronic bills, or e-bills, are delivered directly to a user’s online account. Unlike a paper bill delivered in the mail, the e-bills enable users to view and pay their bills online. They also can review balances and transactions and schedule automatic bill payments. The agreement will positively impact the environment, said Cathy Lazaroff, Allstate vice president of customer experience and innovation. CheckFree is a part of Fiserv Inc., which provides information management and electronic commerce systems and services to the financial industry. Allstate is a personal lines insurer with presence in the U.S. and Canada.
