In June 2002, Unum Provident issued $400 million in new long-term debt to replace existing commercial paper and maturing medium-term notes. This caused nearly all of the remainder of UnumProvident's previous shelf registration to be utilized. A.M.

UnumProvident continues to be the recognized leader in the individual and group disability income market.

In each of these product lines, UnumProvident has a significant market presence.|
