2013 Marks Company's 15th Consecutive Year on Most Prestigious List
COLUMBUS, Ga.,  Jan. 16, 2013  /PRNewswire/ -- Aflac, the number one provider of
supplemental insurance in  the United States, has been named to  FORTUNE 
magazine's prestigious list of the "100 Best Places to Work For". Aflac is the
only insurance company to appear on the list for 15 straight years.

"We are proud of Aflac's 15th  consecutive year appearing on FORTUNE's list of
the  100 Best Places to Work For," Aflac Chairman and Chief Executive Officer 
Dan Amos  said. "It validates our steadfast commitment to treat individuals like
family, because we know that employees provide the foundation of any successful
business, including Aflac."

To pick the 100 Best Companies to Work For, more than 277,000 employees
responded to a survey created by the Best Place to Work Institute, a global
research and consulting firm operating in 45 countries around the world.
Two-thirds of a company's score is based on the results of the survey that asks
questions related to attitudes about management's credibility, job satisfaction,
and camaraderie. The other third is based on responses to the institute's
Culture Audit, which includes detailed questions about pay and benefit programs
and a series of open-ended questions about hiring practices, methods of internal
communication, training, recognition programs, and diversity efforts.

The full list and related stories will appear in the  February 4  issue of
FORTUNE, available on newsstands on  Monday, January 21. FORTUNE's online report
is available at  beginning on the morning of  January
