What is the waiting period for AFLAC benefits?

Asked 9 months ago
The waiting period for AFLAC benefits varies depending on the type of coverage. For accident and sickness plans, the waiting period typically ranges from 0 to 30 days, while for hospital confinement and intensive care plans, it can range from 0 to 90 days. The waiting period is the specified period during which a policyholder must wait before becoming eligible to receive benefits. AFLAC understands the importance of prompt assistance and strives to make the waiting period as minimal as possible, providing financial support when it is needed most. Policyholders should carefully review their plan documents or consult with an AFLAC representative to determine the exact waiting period for their specific coverage.
