1103 Schrock Rd, Suite 201

Columbus, OH 43229 

Silver Corporate Partner

Founded in 1955 in Columbus, Georgia, Aflac (American Family Life Assurance Company) is the #1 provider of supplemental insurance in the United States.

What does it mean when we say we’re the #1 provider of supplemental insurance?  Simply, we insure the most people, pay the most in claims, have the highest customer satisfaction ratings, and we are the only insurance company that has “One-Day Pay.” 

We’re #1 because we do what we say we will do.  Just ask Ethisphere.  We have been named as one of the world’s most ethical companies by Ethisphere for 10 years running.  Aflac is the sole insurance company to appear on this prestigious list every year since the list’s inception.

What are supplemental benefits?  We specialize in Disability, Cancer, Accident, Critical Care, and other policies.  Simply, they pay you, the employee, directly when you get hurt or sick.  You can use that money to help pay bills that quickly add up when you’re out or use it for any other purpose as you see fit.

For employers, offering these benefits is a no-brainer as it increases employee retention, lowers workman’s compensation claims, and does all this without costing the employer a dime!
