Aflac 2009 Annual Report
|August 10 2010|
We’ve Got You Under Our Wing.
When a policyholder gets sick or hurt, Aflac pays cash benefits fast. For 55 years, Aflac insurance policies have given policyholders the opportunity to focus on recovery, not financial stress.
Move over, Wright brothers! More than 100 years after this well-known and daring brotherly duo made history with their first flight, a different set of wings is making history and changing lives.
But this time, the wings belong to the rather boisterous, fiercely protective, and quite loyal Aflac Duck, whose outstretched wings signify what Aflac means when we say, “We’ve Got You Under Our Wing.” These wings provide protection, just as we promise. We protect our policyholders from the financial storm that’s created when a medical health event strikes and bills pile up. We empower our customers to concentrate on getting better while we focus on quickly paying cash benefits.
Aflac is different from major medical insurance; it’s insurance for daily living. Major medical pays doctors and hospitals. In contrast, Aflac pays cash benefits directly to policyholders to help with daily expenditures and the many out-of-pocket expenses resulting from a serious illness or injury – like a mortgage, car payment, groceries, utilities, and child care.
The benefits are predetermined based on medical events, and are paid regardless of any other insurance. Aflac claims are easy to file and they’re processed quickly – usually within four days. Through a broad range of products, we offer an affordable extra layer of financial protection to help provide security at a time when families need it most. We mean what we say, and we say what we mean. “We’ve Got You Under Our Wing.”
As of February 26, 2010, Aflac was rated AA- by Standard & Poor’s, Aa2 (Excellent) by Moody’s, A+ (Superior) by A.M. Best for financial strength, and AA- by R&I for insurance claims-paying ability. For 55 years, Aflac products have given policyholders cash benefits for daily living so they can focus on recovery instead of the financial stress brought about by a serious health event. Aflac is the number one provider of guaranteed-renewable insurance in the United States and the number one insurance company in terms of individual insurance policies in force in Japan, protecting more than 50 million people worldwide.
