Unum Disability Insurance
Help protect your finances when you can’t work
You never expect to be in a position where you can’t work, but something as simple as a back injury or maternity leave could mean time off of work without pay. Fortunately, depending on your plan, you could receive benefits up to 50-70% of your salary through Disability Insurance.
When you get sick or injured and are unable to work, you don’t want to worry about how you’ll pay the bills or wonder where the money for next week’s groceries will come from. Disability Insurance can help replace a portion of your paycheck– you can think of it as income protection.
Disability Insurance might make sense for you if:
You don’t have a large amount of savings or other sources of income available.
You depend on your income to support your lifestyle.
You can’t afford to be out of work for weeks or months at a time
Unum Life Insurance
Provide for your loved ones in a time of need
You want to make sure your family is taken care of, but you don’t know what the future holds. If you pass away, Unum Life Insurance can help your family cover expenses, such as funeral costs, day-to-day expenses, and bills
A Life Insurance policy can protect what matters most
Continue providing for your loved ones
Life Insurance can help your loved ones with financial obligations in the case of your death. In addition to day-to-day expenses, Life Insurance can also help provide money to help pay for college aid or retirement.
Unum offers a range of plans for every stage of your life. Whether you’re planning for a baby, getting married, switching careers, or preparing for retirement, you can have the coverage that fits your needs.
Unum Accident Insurance
You can’t always avoid accidents– but you can help protect yourself
When life takes an unexpected turn, Unum Accident Insurance can help you pay for the expenses not covered by your medical insurance if you have a covered injury and need treatment.
The only way to plan for an accident
Even with good insurance, accidents can bring significant expenses
Injuries can set back your finances in a big way, and they’re more common than you might think. Every 10 minutes, over 750 Americans suffer an injury severe enough to seek medical help.1 Unexpected injury can bring out-of-pocket fees that you’re not prepared to pay.
When you or your family members receive treatment after a covered accident, the last thing you want to worry about is how out-of-pocket expenses associated with treatment are adding up. Unum Accident Insurance can provide benefits paid directly to you for:
Urgent care and emergency room visits
Ambulance and other transportation to the hospital
Initial care and surgery
Hospital stays and lodging expenses related to the accident
Follow-up care, such as doctor’s office visits and physical therapy appointments
Available for you, your spouse, and your dependents, Unum Accident Insurance can be there for you during challenging times.
Unum Critical Illness
Help protect your finances during life-changing events
Critical Illness coverage from Unum can provide financial assistance when a serious illness strikes. Benefits paid by Critical Illness Insurance policies can help you with deductibles, co-pays, and other out-of-pocket costs when you are diagnosed with a covered critical illness, such as a heart attack, stroke, or cancer.
Safeguard against the cost of serious illness
Even if you have health insurance, there are still out-of-pocket expenses
Critical Illness Insurance can help when life throws the unexpected your way. If you’re diagnosed with a covered illness like cancer or you encounter certain catastrophic health events, your plan can pay a lump-sum benefit directly to you, to use however you need.
Every 34 seconds, someone in America will have a coronary event.1 If a serious medical event strikes, your medical insurance may help with the bills, but there are still out-of-pocket costs to contend with. In fact, 75% of insured people who had problems paying medical bills said their co-pays, deductibles, or co-insurance cost more than they could afford.2 Unum Critical Illness Insurance is a smart way to be prepared no matter what comes your way.

Unum Hospital Insurance
Focus on recovery– not finances
It’s no secret that hospital bills can set a family back financially. When you or covered loved ones are admitted to a hospital, Hospital Insurance can provide a lump-sum payment to help you cover the expenses that often follow.
Extra help for unexpected expenses
Reduce the financial strain of a hospital stay
When you need a trip to the hospital, the last thing you want to be thinking about is how it’ll impact your finances. Unfortunately, the reality is that even with major medical insurance, you may still be responsible for co-payments, deductibles, and other out-of-pocket costs.
Our Hospital Insurance helps protect your finances when there’s an emergency. When you or a covered family member is admitted to the hospital, these policies can pay a benefit directly to you to use as you see fit, whether to cover immediate medical costs and travel expenses or to help keep the bills covered at home. Whether you’re being treated on an inpatient or outpatient basis, this coverage can help you manage your expenses during a stressful time.
