Aflac defers merit increases; non-officers to get bonus

by Web Staff - email | Twitter 

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Just one day after announcing its results for the third quarter, Aflac officials say they have decided to defer merit increases until U-S sales improve.

Spokesperson Laura Kane says while it was a difficult decision for the company, company leaders had to make one that was fiscally responsible.

Kane says they feel like the economy has shown signs of recovery, so they anticipate sales will improve soon.

On another note, employees who are non-officers will receive a bonus this year which has increased by 3.5%.
