Allow Companywide Benefits for Same-sex Partners

On the morning of May 7, 2012, Equity Foundation asked 300 Aflac shareholders to provide full domestic partner benefits to its employees nationwide. Aflac rebutted by stating, "Aflac does not want to intrude upon or examine the private lives of its employees -- or place itself in the unenviable position of monitoring the personal relationships of its employees -- but we do want to provide benefits to employees who have made the effort to have their relationships recognized in an official way." - Audrey Boone-Tillman, Aflac's vice president of Corporate Services.

Not every state allows same-sex domestic partnerships, and by Aflac denying benefits for same-sex partnerships in states that don't allow them, they're stating that same-sex relationships are less valued than heterosexual relationships and not worth the extra cost.

Please let Aflac know this is unacceptable.
