Aflac Chairman & CEO Will Forgo 2008 Bonus of $2.8 Million
Date:2/23/2009

COLUMBUS, Ga., Feb. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Aflac, Inc. announced today that Daniel P. Amos, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, has elected to forgo his 2008 bonus of $2.8 million that he earned based on achievement of operating performance measures. The board's compensation committee accepted his proposal recognizing that, although Aflac delivered a strong operating performance in 2008, it is not reflected in the company's stock price given the current turbulence in the stock markets.

In addition, Kriss Cloninger III, Aflac Incorporated President and Chief Financial Officer, voluntarily reduced his bonus by 35% or approximately $477,000.

"Even though Mr. Amos and Mr. Cloninger were entitled to their full operating bonuses -- and in 2008 Aflac outperformed the S&P 500, the S&P Life Index and the Dow -- the board agreed to accept their proposals," said Aflac Incorporated board member Robert B. "Ben" Johnson, chairman of the Compensation Committee. "We support their decision to voluntarily reduce their personal compensation as a demonstration of their commitment to our shareholders."

In 2008, Amos received a salary of $1.3 million and Cloninger received a salary of $857,700.

Additional discussion and analysis will be in the company's proxy statement.
