Unum Group was founded in 1848. The Company is a general business corporation, and its insurance and non-insurance subsidiaries, which collectively with the Company, operate in the United States, the United Kingdom, and, to a limited extent, in certain other countries. The principal operating subsidiaries in the United States are Unum Life Insurance Company of America (Unum America), Provident Life and Accident Insurance Company (Provident), The Paul Revere Life Insurance Company (Paul Revere Life), and Colonial Life & Accident Insurance Company, and in the United Kingdom, Unum Limited. It is the provider of disability insurance products in the United States and the United Kingdom. It also provides a complementary portfolio of other insurance products, including employer- and employee-paid group benefits, life insurance, and other related services. The Company offers group, individual, and voluntary benefits, either as stand-alone products or combined with other coverages, that help employers of all sizes attract and retain a stronger workforce while protecting the incomes and livelihood of their employees. The Company has three principal operating business segments: Unum US, Unum UK, and Colonial Life and its other segments are the Closed Block and Corporate segments. The Unum US segment includes group long-term and short-term disability insurance, group life and accidental death and dismemberment products, and supplemental and voluntary lines of business. The supplemental and voluntary lines of business are comprised of individual disability and voluntary benefits products. Unum US products are issued primarily by Unum America and Provident. It sells group long-term and short-term disability products to employers for the benefit of employees. Group long-term disability provides employees with insurance coverage for loss of income in the event of extended work absences due to sickness or injury. It offers services to employers and insureds to encourage and facilitate rehabilitation, retraining, and re-employment. The policies begin providing benefits following 90 or 180 day waiting periods and continue providing benefits until the employee reaches a certain age, generally between 65 and 70. The benefits are limited to specified maximums as a percentage of income. Group life and accidental death and dismemberment products are sold to employers as employee benefit products. Group life consists primarily of renewable term life insurance with the coverages frequently linked to employees' wages and includes a provision for waiver of premium, if disabled. Accidental death and dismemberment consists primarily of an additional benefit amount payable if death or severe injury is attributable to an accident. The Unum UK segment includes insurance for group long-term disability, group life, and supplemental lines of business which include individual disability and critical illness products. Unum UK's products are issued primarily by Unum L
