Unum is a company of people serving people. A Fortune 500 company, Unum is a market leader in disability, group life, and voluntary benefits. Our products and services meet the needs of a diverse workforce that includes four generations, growing ethnic diversity and changing family dynamics.
A strong commitment to social responsibility is one of Unum's core values. In fact, we place particular emphasis on contributing to positive change in the communities in which we live and work. Helping our communities become better is a natural extension of the commitment we make each and every day to our customers — to help employers manage their businesses and employees protect their families and livelihoods.
Since their founding in 1848, Unum has been known for breaking new ground in the business of benefits. Integrity, determination, innovation and leadership were at the core of their company 165 years ago, and they are just as relevant to their business today.
Just as long-lasting has been their commitment to being there when people need us most, a simple but compelling philosophy that began before the Civil War during a time when investing in insurance to protect yourself from the financial effects of illness and injury was a radical idea. They persevered during the fledgling insurance landscape then, and we're equally committed today to educating consumers about the value of financial protection benefits.
