COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- Supplemental insurance company Aflac plans to add 400 workers to its Columbia operation.

The State newspaper reported that company officials said Wednesday they plan to nearly double their work force to about 825 employees by the end of the year.

The Columbus, Ga.-based company started its group supplemental insurance program in Columbia more than two years ago when it bought Continental American Insurance Co. for $100 million.

Aflac spokesman Jon Sullivan says the group supplemental insurance allows the company to market to larger businesses. Aflac originally only sold individual supplemental coverage.

Aflac is hiring for a range of positions, including call-center specialists, claims processors, managers, supervisors and business analysts.
