Aflac is a Fortune 500 company, providing financial protection to more than 50 million people worldwide. When a policyholder or insured gets sick or hurt, Aflac pays cash benefits fairly, promptly, and often in one day for eligible claims, directly to the insured (unless assigned otherwise). For more than six decades, Aflac voluntary insurance policies have given policyholders the opportunity to focus on recovery, not financial stress.
Since the founding of our company in 1955, we've put the customer first by reminding ourselves daily of the promises we've made to those we insure. By doing so, we've gained the trust of more than 50 million people who count on us to pay claims fairly, promptly when they need us most often paid in one day for eligible claims. Our customers choose Aflac because of our commitment to providing them with the confidence that comes from knowing they have assistance in being prepared for whatever life may bring.
Our company's history began more than six decades ago with the idea of three brothers who saw a need for financial protection when a medical situation occurs.
