CIGNA Group Insurance CIGNA Group Insurance provides group, disability, life and accident coverage in the U.S. The organization is one of the top five providers in disability management and insurance with solutions that focus on helping employees return to a productive work life as quickly and safely as possible. It also is one of the top five providers of group term life and group universal life, and of group accident insurance, including voluntary accident and business travel accident insurance.
CIGNA was formed in 1981 through the combination of the Connecticut General Corporation and INA Corporation. Today CIGNA's logo, the Tree of Life, symbolizes the corporation's culture, mission and products. Like a strong and healthy tree, CIGNA has deep roots. INA was founded in 1792 in Philadelphia after meetings in Independence Hall. Connecticut General was founded in 1865 in Hartford as a life insurance company.
CIGNA's formation in 1981 combined a leading property-casualty insurer with a leading supplier of life insurance and employee benefits. Over time, CIGNA sharpened its focus on group health care and related benefits, divesting its individual life insurance business in 1998, its domestic and international property and casualty operations in 1999, and its retirement benefits business in 2004.
Today, CIGNA continues to innovate, expand and grow. CIGNA's subsidiaries are major providers of employee benefits offered through the work place. CIGNA's stock is listed on the New York Stock Exchange (Symbol: CI), Philadelphia Stock Exchange and Pacific Stock Exchange. In offices throughout the United States and around the world, CIGNA employees are united by a shared past and a commitment to building "A Business of Caring."
