Kent State University is currently offering Aflac’s Group Accident, Group Critical Illness and Group Hospital Indemnity insurance to employees through Nov. 30, 2016.

While major medical insurance pays for doctors and hospitals, Aflac is insurance that pays cash benefits directly to you. It provides predetermined benefits that are paid regardless of any other insurance you have. And it fits most budgets — rates don't go up when you file a claim.

Kent State University faculty, staff, students and parents are eligible for a 5 percent discount at the Kent State University Hotel and Conference Center. Rates vary depending on dates and occupancy. For more information and to book reservations, visit www.kentstatehotel.com or call 330-346-0100.
