AFLAC is not a "regular" insurance company.
* We're not health insurance or property and casualty insurance.
* We offer supplemental insurance products which help fill in the gaps that health insurance doesn't pay for
* One of the many reasons people love us is that we pay them cash benefits within 4-6 days.
The skill sets you'll acquire will help you in whatever industry and/or career you move forward with.
