Advocating for Access
to Benefits

Expanding access to financial protection benefits at the workplace can significantly reduce the need for government-funded support. Unum provides people and their families the financial protection benefits they need when faced with the unexpected challenges of illness or injury, helping them maintain their quality of life and close financial gaps. Employees also benefit directly: Studies show employees are more committed and engaged when their employers offer comprehensive benefits packages.

Still, many employees lack affordable access to these vital benefits. To help change that, we regularly engage with policymakers, industry groups, and other public and private institutions to find ways to make benefits like the ones we offer more accessible and affordable to all employees
