In 1937, Edwin F. Averyt and J. Clifton Judy started Mutual Accident Company in Columbia, South Carolina and sold their first product — accidental death coverage. Their first sales team was comprised of mostly local women. They could relate to the struggles others were going through and talk with them about their financial protection needs.
In 1939, the company became Colonial Life & Accident Insurance Company. The mission then was the same as it is today — to help America’s workers preserve and protect the vitally important things they work so hard to build.
We’ve continued to evolve over the years:
Today, we continue to add innovative enrollment technologies and options. After more than 75 years of business, we remain dedicated to our mission of finding ways to help America’s workers when they face unexpected events and challenging times.

We’re committed to providing affordable insurance products to meet our customers’ needs, and we’re dedicated to meeting our financial commitments.
Voluntary benefits for your employees.
Colonial Life helps take care of your business, your employees and their families. Voluntary benefits, sometimes called supplemental insurance, are often employee-paid policies that enhance the health and life insurance employers provide. Paid directly to the employee, they can be used for things other insurance may not cover, such as lost wages, out-of-pocket expenses and household bills. Our voluntary benefits are designed to enable you to offer a complete benefits plan that empowers your employees to work happier and healthier. Help your employees prepare for unexpected challenges today to help ensure financial protection and peace of mind for tomorrow.
Disability insurance helps provide peace of mind for your employees.
Improve recovery and productivity with disability income protection. When an employee is unable to work due to an illness or injury, it impacts everyone. Provide the support they need during tough times with Colonial Life insurance.
Accident insurance protects your employees from the unexpected.
Empower your employees to be prepared for whatever life throws their way. When employees get injured, it can take a mental and financial toll. Help give your employees peace of mind with access to accident insurance that can help cover the costs of accident care, recovery and even treatment‐related transportation and lodging.
Complement your health benefits offering with hospital indemnity insurance.
Hospital Indemnity insurance is the smart companion for today’s high deductible health plans. Health care costs are climbing, and like you, your employees are looking for help. With an increasingly competitive job market, it’s important to offer a strong benefits package that can assist with these rising expenses.
Boost employee confidence with critical illness insurance.
Provide valuable financial protection for out-of-pocket cost. When employees experience a critical illness, they often have expenses that aren’t covered by their health insurance. During these challenging times, critical illness insurance can help them focus on recovery and getting back to work sooner.
Tough times get easier with cancer insurance.
Offer protection through diagnosis, treatment and recovery. Cancer insurance enhances your benefits package by assisting employees and their loved ones if they face a battle with cancer, without adding costs to your bottom line.
Boost your benefits package with dental and vision coverage.
Voluntary benefits give your employees more reasons to smile. Dental insurance and vision insurance are essential parts of any competitive benefits package. By offering coverage through Colonial Life, you can help your employees pay for dental and vision care without impacting your bottom line.
