ATLANTA -- October 24, 2013

It was a party with a purpose as hundreds of Assurant employees convened in
the courtyard of the company’s Miami campus on Friday, Oct. 18 to play video
games on their mobile devices. In the process of raising money for the United
Way, the 685 game-playing employees also set a new Guinness World Record for
the world’s largest mobile gaming party.

“We’re proud of our employees for their commitment to the United Way and the
community,” said Manuel Becerra, president of the Assurant Solutions Mobile
Services business, which provides mobile device and data protection for mobile
operators worldwide. “This event was a wonderful way to leverage the power and
fun of mobile technology to support an organization that we believe in.”

Employees paid a minimum donation of $3 to participate in the mobile gaming
party, and more than 841 tickets were sold prior to the event. The Assurant
Foundation will match the employee donations made through this fundraising
event.

Assurant has been a part of the Miami community since 1948 and enjoys a
longstanding relationship with the United Way. The company’s mission as a
corporate citizen stresses the importance of giving back to the communities
where our employees live and work and supporting worthwhile organizations that
help those in need. Assurant provides continued support of The United Way
through volunteer activities, sponsorships and fundraising events.

The previous largest mobile phone gaming party involved 510 participants and
was achieved by Bharti Airtel Ltd - Team Karnataka in Mangalore, India, on
April 5, 2013. Certification from Guinness is still pending for Assurant.
