Add description field to Check Pay Payees so multiples of same Payee are distinguished in register

I have 10 policies with State Farm, each separately invoiced with a different account number. In the old Quicken, there was a Description field that would let you distinguish payments to them in the register, with the description appended to the payee's name, e.g.

State Farm{description}

But there doesn't appear to be any way to do that with Check Pay payees. (I can't use Bill Pay because Quicken repeated tells me my account is locked.) So I have to manually enter something in the memo field each time I make a payment (20 times a year) and trust that I don't make a mistake and that I use the same memos consistently to enable reporting and searching.

Tell me again how Quicken makes paying bills convenient?
