About Unum Founded in 1848, Unum has been breaking new ground in the business of health insurance benefits for 160 years. Their commitment to being there when people need them most is a simple but compelling philosophy that began before the Civil War, during a time when investing in insurance to protect from the financial effects of illness and injury was a radical idea. Wiki Says Unum’s predecessor, Union Mutual Life Insurance Company, was founded in 1848, making it one of the oldest insurance companies in the United States. It was one of the first major U.S. mutual insurance companies to convert to public ownership, forming unum corporation in 1986. Unum’s strategy eventually evolved into providing disability and special risk products. Through its subsidiaries, Unum became the leader in group disability insurance. Unum Health Insurance Says Unum’s short-term and long-term disability coverage replaces a portion of income when an employee is unable to work, whether the absence is prompted by maternity leave or serious illness.
