Unum (NYSE:UNM) has earned the ClearMark Award from the Center for Plain Language for its guide on filing a disability claim. Judges at the recent ClearMark Awards named the guide the best document in its category.


Judges praised the guide's clear timeline and direct, jargon-free language. The revision of the guide was part of a much broader effort across the company to make Unum's communications to its customers simpler and more effective.

"Our industry is complex, so it's a challenge to make plain language the standard. But we're focused on making it happen."
