NEW YORK, April 16, 2013

NEW YORK, April 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ING U.S., Inc., (ING U.S.) today
announced that it has filed an amended Registration Statement on Form S-1 with
the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in connection with its proposed
initial public offering (IPO).

The proposed IPO will consist of both a primary component offered by ING U.S.
and a secondary component offered by Netherlands-based ING Group at a
currently estimated price range of $21.00 to $24.00 per share for a maximum of
64,166,667 shares of common stock offered, excluding an overallotment option
ING Group has granted the underwriters. Based on this price range, the total
offering is expected to be approximately $1.4 billion to $1.5 billion in size,
including $600 million in primary proceeds for ING U.S., and will reduce ING
Group's ownership in ING U.S. to 75 percent immediately following the IPO.

ING U.S.'s amended Registration Statement also includes preliminary
qualitative statements on its first quarter financial results.

ING U.S. has been approved to list its common stock on the New York Stock
Exchange, subject to official notice of issuance, under the symbol "VOYA,"
which reflects the new brand name of Voya Financial that ING U.S. recently
announced it will transition to beginning in 2014.

Inc. are acting as joint global coordinators for the offering. Bank of America
Merrill Lynch, Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank Securities, and J.P. Morgan are
