Aflac, a provider of voluntary insurance in the US, has launched a new suite of value-added services, in a bid to address the needs of business owners and their employees.

The new Aflac Business Solutions will enable employees to protect themselves and their assets against fraud and identify theft.

It will provide small businesses with banking relationships and assistance to insured employees and their families, as well as supports employers with affordable care act (ACA) compliance requirements.

Aflac Business Solutions will provide agents and brokers with premiere partner services, including small business banking, fraud protection, ACA reporting, benefit management support and flexible spending services.

Aflac US president Teresa White said: "We believe Aflac Business Solutions expands on the Aflac promise by giving us additional resources to support business owners and employees every day from the moment they become our customers.

"We know our clients, policyholders and certificate holders, and broker partners are demanding more from their benefits provider. Our mission is to help businesses keep employees happy and productive."

In August this year, Aflac introduced a new supplemental accident insurance policy, Accident Advantage.

The new improved accident product allows individual policyholders to select different levels of coverage, as well as other benefits related to accidents and injuries.
