emental lines of business, which include individual disability and critical illness products. This segment’s products are issued primarily by Unum Limited and are sold in the United Kingdom through field sales personnel and independent brokers and consultants. Group Long-term Disability Group long-term disability products are sold to employers for the benefit of employees. Group long-term disability provides employees with insurance coverage for loss of income in the event of extended work absences due to sickness or injury. Services are offered to employers and insureds to encourage and facilitate rehabilitation, retraining, and re-employment. Majority policies begin providing benefits following 90 or 180 day waiting periods and continue providing benefits until the employee reaches a certain age, between 60 and 67. Group Life Group life products are sold to employers as employee benefit products. Group life consists of two types of products, a renewable term life insurance product providing a lump sum benefit to the beneficiary on death of an employee and a group dependent life product, which provides an annuity to the beneficiary upon the death of an employee. Both coverages are frequently linked to employees' wages. Individual Disability Individual disability is offered primarily to individual retail customers. Individual disability insurance provides the insured with a portion of earned income lost as a result of sickness or injury. Under an individual disability policy, monthly benefits are fixed at the time the policy is written. The company develops its assumptions based on its own claims and persistency experience and published industry tables. Its underwriters evaluate the medical and financial condition of prospective policyholders prior to the issuance of a policy. Critical Illness Group critical illness products are sold to groups of employees. Individual critical illness products are offered to individual retail customers. Critical illness products provide a lump-sum benefit on the occurrence of a covered critical illness event. Colonial Life segment This segment includes insurance for accident, sickness, and disability products; life products; and cancer and critical illness products issued primarily by Colonial Life & Accident Insurance Company and marketed to employees, on both a group and an individual basis, at the workplace through an independent contractor agency sales force and brokers. Accident, Sickness, and Disability The accident, sickness, and disability product line consists of short-term disability plans, as well as accident-only plans providing benefits for injuries on a specified loss basis. It also includes accident and health plans covering hospital admissions, confinement, and surgeries on an indemnity basis. Life Life products primarily include universal life, whole life, and term life policies. Cancer and Critical Illness Cancer policies provide various benefits for the treatment of cancer, including hospitalization, surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy. Critical illness policies provide a lump-sum benefit and/or fixed payments on the occurrence of a covered critical illness event. Closed Block segment This segment consists of individual disability, group and individual long-term care, and other insurance products no longer marketed. Individual Disability The company sold these types of policies on a limited basis and discontinued issuing new policies in this closed block of business, other than through update features contractually allowable on existing policies. Group and Individual Long-term Care The company discontinued offering individual long-term care and group long-term care, other than features contractually allowable on existing group policies. Its long-term care insurance is sold on a guaranteed renewable basis, which allows the company to re-price in-force policies, subject to regulatory approval. Other Other insurance products not marketed include group pension, individual life and corporate-owned life insurance, reinsurance pools and management operations, and other miscellaneous product lines.
