Sally has been with AFLAC for almost 8 years. Although she doesn’t know the Duck

personally, she does know the good he can do when people take advantage of the
various voluntary AFLAC benefits that are offered through payroll deduction. 

Many employers seek to look out for the well being of their employees by offering
a variety of voluntary plans from which employees may choose. All AFLAC plans are
guaranteed renewable (a policy cannot be cancelled, except for non payment of premium),
portable (they go with a person when he/she leaves because they actually own them) and the cost 
will never go up (once a person signs up)! All the (monetary) benefits are paid directly to the policyholder.

Many folks don’t know that most AFLAC policies are available on a direct, individual basis also. All you need to do is ask!
