Unum, a provider of group and individual disability insurance products, has announced that it will launch its new product and service platform called Simply Unum, with sales and service now available in 19 states.

According to the company, this next-generation benefits solution will be offered in an additional 23 states of US on June 1, 2008. Simply Unum provides a base of group disability and life insurance coupled with voluntary benefits.

With more than 28,000 product combinations possible, an employer can offer benefit options that meet the specific needs of their workforce at a price that doesn’t strain the bottom line. It operates on a single technology platform, creating one path from benefit package design to quoting to enrollment to ongoing billing and administration.

Mike Simonds, senior vice president of product development and marketing department at Unum, said: One-on-one meetings with employees about Simply Unum allow us to discuss the full value of workplace benefits and to help employees understand where there may be gaps in coverage.
