For almost 60 years, Aflac has been dedicated to helping provide individuals and families peace of mind and financial security when they’ve needed it most. Group Accident Advantage Plus is just another innovative way to help make sure you and your employees are well protected under our wing.

  • Aflac Group Accident
    It adds up to better benefits.

    Accidents are, by nature, unplanned–but that doesn’t mean you can’t help your employees prepare for them. Adding accident insurance to your current benefits offering gives employees additional financial protection by paying cash benefits when they have an accidental injury.

  • Aflac Group Critical Illness
    They can weather the illness. You can help them weather the financial stress.

    More people than ever are recovering from critical illnesses today. But advances in medical care that help employees weather the illness, come at a cost. Adding group critical illness insurance to your benefits package offers your employees additional protection to help make sure when they’re diagnosed with a critical illness that their finances pull through, too.

  • Features:
    • Payroll Deduction—Premiums are paid by convenient payroll deduction.
    • Portable Coverage—Employees can continue through bank draft or direct billing (with certain stipulations).
    • Fast Claims Payment—Most claims are processed in about four days.**
    • Unlimited Claims—There is no limit on the number of claims a certificate holder can file.
