The Standard Introduces Three Flexible Vision Insurance Plans
Date:6/23/2008

PORTLAND, Ore., June 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Standard Insurance Company ("The Standard"), a subsidiary of StanCorp Financial Group, Inc. (NYSE: SFG), introduces new vision insurance products for employers with as few as 10 employees. With the addition of this new product line, The Standard now provides employers with the opportunity to offer their employees group short term disability, long term disability, life, dental and vision insurance from a single carrier.

"Vision care helps keep employees healthy and productive. And as one of the most popular employee benefits, vision insurance can help employers attract and retain valuable employees," said Jane E. Hood, vice president of Employee Benefits Marketing. "With our new vision plans, employers can select from three distinct offerings that help them meet their specific budgetary and benefits needs."

Available on both an employer-paid and voluntary basis, The Standard's vision plans contain a variety of provisions that will help employees save money on vision-care services. Each plan can be designed to fit the needs of a diverse workforce and each is backed by The Standard's commitment to providing excellent customer service.

The three new plans are:

Balanced Care Vision(SM) Plan I Employees receive preferred pricing on a variety of vision-care services when they select providers from the VSP nationwide network. Services include LASIK and Photorefractive Keratectomy (better known as PRK).

Balanced Care Vision(SM) Plan II

This plan provides discounts through EyeMed's national network of vision- care providers. The EyeMed network includes some of the largest optical retailers in the U.S., including LensCrafters(R), Sears Optical(R), Target Optical(R), JCPenney Optical and most Pearle Vision(SM) locations.

Balanced Care Vision(SM) Plan III

This flexible plan takes the guesswork out of vision care. The benefits are the same for employees no matter which vision-care provider they choose.

-- All three plans are available on an employer-paid or voluntary basis

-- Low participation requirement (10 employees)

-- Toll-free customer-service numbers and an interactive voice response

system make it convenient to reach The Standard
