Through its subsidiaries, they have the authority to underwrite insurance products in all 50 states as well as the District of Columbia and the U.S. territories of Guam and the Virgin Islands.

Coverage is offered to insured employees and their dependents. AD&D insurance is usually provided in conjunction with group life insurance, and is payable after the accidental death or dismemberment of the insured in an amount based on the face amount of the policy or dismemberment schedule. The Asset Management segment offers full-service 401(k) plans, 403(b) plans, 457 plans, defined benefit plans, money purchase pension plans, profit sharing plans and non-qualified deferred compensation products and services. This segment also offers investment advisory and management services, financial planning services, origination and servicing of fixed-rate commercial mortgage loans, individual fixed-rate annuity products, group annuity contracts and retirement plan trust products.

This category includes return on capital not allocated to the product segments, holding company expenses, operations of certain unallocated subsidiaries, interest on debt, unallocated expenses, net capital gains and losses related to the impairment or the disposition of its invested assets and adjustments made in consolidation. Competition for the sale of its products comes primarily from other insurers and financial services companies such as banks, broker-dealers, mutual funds, and managed care providers for employer groups, individual consumers and distributors. The Company's insurance products are regulated by the jurisdictions in which they sell their products including all 50 states, the District of Columbia, the U.S. territories of Guam and the Virgin Islands.
