Many employees in the U.S. and U.K. still lack access to affordable financial protection benefits that help them face the unexpected challenges of illness or injury. Every dollar employers spend offering these benefits significantly reduces the need for government-funded support and the burden on taxpayers. We’re committed to partnering with policymakers and public and private institutions in both countries to find ways to help more people gain access to this critical protection. The positions disclosed in our policy statement
form the basis of all political spending decisions.
We strive to create positive change every day for our customers and communities. Visit our Environmental, Social and Governance Report
to learn more about how we’re making a difference, including our efforts to raise public awareness of the need for financial protection benefits.
