What you'll learn

For more than 40 years, Unum has specialised in providing financial protection through the workplace. That’s Income Protection, Sick Pay Insurance, Life Insurance and Critical Illness Insurance. At the end of 2013 we insured almost 1.6 million people and paid claims of £320 million to our customers, which represents more than £6 million a week.

We’re committed to bringing financial protection to the UK’s workforce. If employees can’t work due to long term illness or injury, they need to have a back-up plan in place. Over the past few years we’ve been exploring the value of workplace wellbeing and what it takes to be an employer of choice. A well-balanced employee benefits package is a tangible way employers can show they value their workforce. We’re working with advisers to ensure that more employers are aware the benefits financial protection can offer to both their employees and to their business.
