Over 50 Million people worldwide have chosen Aflac because of our commitment to providing customers with the confidence that comes from knowing they have assistance in being prepared for whatever life may bring. In 1958, Aflac developed a ground-breaking cancer expense policy. In its initial year 5,810 plans were sold and by the end of the decade 376 agents were selling insurance in Georgia, Alabama, and Florida. Additional policies to cover accidents, disability, dental work, specified health events, hospital confinement, hospital intensive care,
and vision have since been added to Aflac's offerings. Throughout its history, Aflac has earned a reputation for strong ethics by doing things the Aflac way. In 2007 Aflac CEO Dan Amos proposed and the Board of Directors approved the first ever shareholders vote on executive compensation, known as "Say on Pay". The initiative gave unprecedented access to shareholders in determining whether executives were receiving compensation commensurate with company success. In May, 2008, Shareholders first approved the company's compensation policies
with 93 percent voting in favor and have voted in favor of it every year since.
