Providing Benefit Solutions

Colonial Life & Accident Insurance Company is a market leader in providing benefit solutions for employers in one neat package: personal insurance products, benefits communication and education, and flexible enrollment support.

Founded in 1939 in Columbia, S.C., Colonial Life has helped employers provide personal financial protection benefits through the workplace for nearly 75 years. We now support more than 79,000 businesses and organizations, representing more than 3 million working Americans and their families.

Colonial Life helps employers design a flexible employee benefits package that fits the needs of their business and their employees. This enables them to manage ever-increasing health care costs, and build a more loyal and satisfied workforce. Through our benefits counseling and education, we help ensure employees are better equipped to understand and appreciate the benefits available to them at work, and to make choices that best meet their personal needs.

Colonial Life’s commitment to excellence extends from its 1,000 home office employees to its 10,000-member national sales organization to the communities where we work and live. The company has received national recognition for its excellent sales training programs and annually receives national recognition as brokers’ partner of choice in the workplace benefits market. Colonial Life has been named one of the Best Places to Work in South Carolina, and its national headquarters building in Columbia, S.C., has earned the Environmental Protection Agency’s ENERGY STAR® certification. We actively support our local community through partnerships, volunteerism and charitable giving.

Solutions for employers and employees

Each individual’s lifestyle and needs are different from the next person’s. Our personal insurance products offer a broad range of benefit options for employers and employees, and many can help manage the rising costs of health care. We help employers provide their employees a well-rounded benefits package, complemented by no-cost services that make benefits enrollment and administration hassle-free.
