Unum has rolled out its integrated benefits platform Simply Unum, in California, Hawaii and Maryland. It offers new voluntary disability benefits and funding options in 40 states and the District of Columbia.

According to Simply Unum, the enhanced disability offering includes voluntary disability coverage for employees and the new Benefit Credits funding option, which allow employers to contribute a set dollar amount toward the purchase of coverage by their employees.

Andrea Gordon, vice president of Simply Unum National Practice, said: “The strong growth of this unique approach to benefits since its initial launch in late 2007 clearly shows us that employers are looking for an offering that combines benefits choice, funding flexibility, education and simple administration.

“The expansion of the ways Simply Unum can help employers and their employees, and being able to say Simply Unum is available in every state are the results listening and responding to the customers who have helped make the benefits solution successful.”
