prospectus supplement and the accompanying prospectus are an offer to sell only the notes offered hereby, but only under
circumstances and in jurisdictions where it is lawful to do so. The information contained or incorporated by reference in this
prospectus supplement, the accompanying prospectus and any related free writing prospectus prepared by us is current only as of
their respective dates. Our business, financial condition, results of operations and prospects may have changed since those dates.

Table of Contents
ABOU T T H I S PROSPECT U S SU PPLEM EN T
This document is in two parts. The first part is this prospectus supplement, which describes the terms of the offering of the
notes and also adds to and updates information contained in the accompanying prospectus and the documents incorporated by
reference into this prospectus supplement and the accompanying prospectus. The second part is the accompanying prospectus,
which provides more general information. To the extent there is a conflict between the information contained in this prospectus
supplement, on the one hand, and the information contained in the accompanying prospectus or any document incorporated herein
and therein by reference, on the other hand, you should rely on the information contained in this prospectus supplement.
As used in this prospectus supplement, unless the context otherwise requires, references to "we", "us", "our" or "the
Company" refer to the consolidated operations of Aflac Incorporated, and its direct and indirect operating subsidiaries. "Parent
Company" refers solely to Aflac Incorporated. "Aflac" refers solely to our subsidiary, American Family Life Assurance Company of
Columbus, an insurance company domiciled in Nebraska. Aflac operates in the United States ("Aflac U.S.") and operates as a
branch in Japan ("Aflac Japan").
The functional currency of Aflac Japan's insurance operations is the Japanese yen. We translate our yen-denominated
financial statement accounts into U.S. dollars as follows. Assets and liabilities are translated at end-of-period exchange rates.
Realized gains and losses on security transactions are translated at the exchange rate on the trade date of each transaction. Other
revenues, expenses and cash flows are translated using average exchange rates for the year. The resulting currency translation
adjustments are reported in accumulated other comprehensive income. We include in earnings the realized currency exchange
gains and losses resulting from transactions.
Aflac Incorporated may, without notice to or consent of the holders of the notes, re-open this offering and issue additional
notes having the same ranking, interest rate, maturity date and other terms (except for the issue date, public offering price, and, if
applicable, the initial interest payment date) as the notes being offered by this prospectus supplement. The notes and the Senior
Debt Indenture under which the notes will be issued do not place any limitation on the amount of unsecured debt that may be
incurred by us. Any additional notes, together with the notes offered by this prospectus supplement, will constitute a single series of
debt securities under the Senior Debt Indenture.
You should rely only on the information contained or incorporated by reference in this prospectus supplement and the
accompanying prospectus. Neither we nor the underwriters have authorized anyone to provide you with additional or different
information. Neither we nor the underwriters are making an offer to sell these securities in any jurisdiction where the offer or sale is
not permitted. You should assume that the information contained in this prospectus supplement, the accompanying prospectus and
the documents incorporated herein and therein by reference is accurate only as of their respective dates. Our business, financial
condition, results of operations and prospects may have changed since those dates.
The distribution of this prospectus supplement and the accompanying prospectus and the offer and sale of the notes in
certain jurisdictions may be restricted by law. The Company and the underwriters require persons into whose possession this
prospectus supplement and the accompanying prospectus come to inform themselves about and to observe any such restrictions.
This prospectus supplement and the accompanying prospectus do not constitute an offer of, or an invitation to purchase, any of the
notes in any jurisdiction in which such offer or invitation would be unlawful.

Afla c I nc orpora t e d
The Parent Company was incorporated in 1973 under the laws of the State of Georgia. The Parent Company is a
general business holding company and acts as a management company, overseeing the operations of its subsidiaries by
providing management services and making capital available. Its principal business is supplemental health and life insurance,
which is marketed and administered through its subsidiary, Aflac. Aflac operates in the United States (Aflac U.S.) and as a
branch in Japan (Aflac Japan). Most of Aflac's policies are individually underwritten and marketed through independent agents.
Additionally, Aflac U.S. markets and administers group products through Continental American Insurance Company (CAIC),
referred to as Aflac Group Insurance. Our insurance operations in the United States and our branch in Japan service the two
markets for our insurance business.
We believe Aflac is the world's leading underwriter of individually issued policies marketed at worksites. We offer
voluntary insurance policies in Japan and the United States that provide a layer of financial protection against income and
asset loss. We continue to diversify our product offerings in both Japan and the United States. Aflac Japan sells voluntary
supplemental insurance products, including cancer plans, general medical indemnity plans, medical/sickness riders, care plans,
living benefit life plans, ordinary life insurance plans and annuities. Aflac U.S. sells voluntary supplemental insurance products
including products designed to protect individuals from depletion of assets (accident, cancer, critical illness/critical care, hospital
intensive care, hospital indemnity, fixed-benefit dental, and vision care plans) and loss-of-income products (life and short-term
disability plans).
We are authorized to conduct insurance business in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, several U.S. territories and
Japan. Aflac Japan's revenues, including realized gains and losses on its investment portfolio, accounted for 72% of the
Company's total revenues in 2014, compared with 74% in 2013 and 77% in 2012. The percentage of the Company's total
assets attributable to Aflac Japan was 82% at December 31, 2014, compared with 85% at December 31, 2013.
Our principal executive offices are located at 1932 Wynnton Road, Columbus, Georgia 31999, and our telephone number
is (706) 323-3431.

Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014, which are incorporated by reference in this prospectus
supplement. Before making an investment decision, you should carefully consider these risks as well as other information we
include or incorporate by reference in this prospectus supplement and the accompanying prospectus. The risks and uncertainties
we have described are not the only ones we face. Additional risks and uncertainties not presently known to us or that we currently
deem immaterial may also affect our business operations. These risks could materially affect our business, results of operations or
financial condition and cause the value of our securities to decline. You could lose all or part of your investment.
Risk s re la t ing t o our se nior de bt
Because the notes will be issued by the Parent Company, which is a holding company, the notes will be structurally
subordinated to the obligations of our subsidiaries.
The Parent Company is a holding company whose assets primarily consist of the capital stock of its subsidiaries. Because
the Parent Company is a holding company, holders of the notes will have a junior position to the claims of creditors of its
subsidiaries on their assets and earnings. The notes will be unsecured and unsubordinated obligations and will:

Y rank equally in right of payment with all of our other unsecured and unsubordinated senior indebtedness, including other

senior unsecured indebtedness issued under the indenture under which the notes will be issued;

Y be effectively subordinated in right of payment to all our secured indebtedness to the extent of the value of the assets

securing such indebtedness;


Y be effectively subordinated to all existing and future obligations (including insurance obligations) of our subsidiaries; and


Y not be guaranteed by any of our subsidiaries.
At December 31, 2014, the aggregate amount of our outstanding consolidated indebtedness was $5,282 million, of which
none was secured. All unsecured indebtedness of the Parent Company would rank equally in right of payment with the notes. All
obligations (including insurance obligations) of our subsidiaries would be effectively senior to the notes. At December 31, 2014, the
consolidated obligations of our subsidiaries reflected on our balance sheet were approximately $101,420 million.
Furthermore, in the event of insolvency, bankruptcy, liquidation, dissolution, receivership, reorganization or similar event
involving a subsidiary, the assets of that subsidiary would be used to satisfy claims of policyholders and creditors of the subsidiary
rather than the Parent Company's creditors. As a result of the application of the subsidiary's assets to satisfy claims of
policyholders and creditors, the value of the stock of the subsidiary would be diminished and perhaps rendered worthless. Any such
diminution in the value of the shares of the Parent Company's subsidiaries would adversely impact its financial condition and
possibly impair its ability to meet its obligations on the debt securities. In addition, any liquidation of the assets of the Parent
Company's subsidiaries (Aflac U.S., in particular) to satisfy claims of such subsidiary's policyholders and creditors might make it
impossible for such subsidiary to pay dividends to the Parent Company. Likewise, any inability of Aflac Japan to repatriate earnings
to Aflac may also limit Aflac's ability to pay dividends to the Parent Company. This inability to pay dividends would further impair the
Parent Company's ability to satisfy its obligations under the notes.

S-4
Table of Contents
The indenture under which the notes will be issued will contain only limited protection for holders of the notes in the
event the Parent Company is involved in a highly leveraged transaction, reorganization, restructuring, merger or similar
transaction in the future.
The indenture under which the notes will be issued may not sufficiently protect holders of notes in the event the Parent
Company is involved in a highly leveraged transaction, reorganization, restructuring, merger or similar transaction. The indenture
will not contain any provisions restricting the Parent Company's ability to:


Y incur additional debt, including debt senior in right of payment to the notes;


Y pay dividends on or purchase or redeem capital stock;

Y sell assets (other than certain restrictions on the Parent Company's ability to consolidate, merge or sell all or substantially

all of its assets and its ability to sell the stock of certain subsidiaries);


Y enter into transactions with affiliates;

Y create liens (other than certain limitations on creating liens on the stock of certain subsidiaries) or enter into sale and

leaseback transactions; or


http://www.sec.gov/Archives/edgar/data/4977/000119312515086483/d882922d424b2.htm[3/11/2015 9:51:21 AM]


424B2

Y create restrictions on the payment of dividends or other amounts to the Parent Company from its subsidiaries.
Additionally, the indenture will not require the Parent Company to offer to purchase the notes in connection with a change of
control or require that the Parent Company adhere to any financial tests or ratios or specified levels of net worth. The Parent
Company's ability to recapitalize, incur additional debt and take a number of other actions that are not limited by the terms of the
notes could have the effect of diminishing the Parent Company's ability to make payments on the notes when due.
An active trading market for the notes may not develop.
The notes are new issues of securities with no established trading market, and we do not intend to list the notes on any
securities exchange or for quotation in any automated dealer quotation system. We have been informed by the underwriters that
they intend to make a market in the notes after the offering is completed. However, the underwriters may cease their market-
making at any time. In addition, the liquidity of the trading market in the notes, and the market price quoted for the notes, may be
adversely affected by changes in the overall market for fixed income securities and by changes in our financial performance or
prospects or in the prospects for companies in our industry generally. In addition, such market-making activity will be subject to
limits imposed by the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act") and the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as
amended (the "Exchange Act"). As a result, you cannot be sure that an active trading market will develop for the notes. If no active
trading market develops, you may not be able to resell your notes at their fair market value or at all.
Increases in the prevailing interest rate environment could adversely impact the trading price of the notes.
The condition of the financial markets and prevailing interest rates have fluctuated in the past and are likely to fluctuate in
the future, and increases in the prevailing interest rate environment could have an adverse effect on the trading price of the notes.

DESCRI PT I ON OF T H E N OT ES
Set forth below is a description of the specific terms of the notes. This description supplements, and should be read together
with, the description of the general terms and provisions of the securities set forth in the accompanying prospectus under the
caption "Description of Debt Securities". The following description does not purport to be complete and is subject to, and qualified
in its entirety by reference to, the indenture dated as of May 21, 2009, as supplemented by a tenth supplemental indenture for the

"Senior Debt Indenture", between Aflac Incorporated, as issuer, and The Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company, N.A., as
trustee, which we refer to as the "Trustee", pursuant to which the notes will be issued. Although for convenience the 2020 notes
and the 2025 notes are referred to as "notes", each will be issued as a separate series and will not together have any class voting
rights. Accordingly, for purposes of this Description of Notes, references to the "notes" shall be deemed to refer to each series of
notes separately, and not to the 2020 notes and the 2025 notes on any combined basis. All capitalized terms herein that are not
defined within this prospectus supplement shall have the same meanings as defined in the Senior Debt Indenture. As used in this
"Description of the Notes" section, unless the context otherwise requires, references to "we", "us", "our" or "the Company" refer to
Aflac Incorporated.

Aflac Incorporated may, without notice to or consent of the holders of the notes, re-open this offering and issue additional
notes of a series having the same ranking, interest rate, maturity date and other terms (except for the issue date, public offering
price, and, if applicable, the initial interest payment date) as the notes of such series being offered by this prospectus supplement.
The notes and the Senior Debt Indenture under which the notes will be issued do not place any limitation on the amount of
unsecured debt that may be incurred by us. Any additional notes of a series, together with the notes of such series offered by this
prospectus supplement, will constitute a single series of debt securities under the Senior Debt Indenture.
The notes are our unsecured obligations and will rank equally and pari passu with all of our existing and future unsecured
senior indebtedness from time to time outstanding.
M a t urit y
The entire principal amount of the 2020 notes will mature and become due and payable, together with any accrued and
unpaid interest thereon, on March 16, 2020. The entire principal amount of the 2025 notes will mature and become due and
payable, together with any accrued and unpaid interest thereon, on March 17, 2025.
I nt e re st
Each 2020 note will bear interest at 2.40% per year and each 2025 note will bear interest at 3.25% per year, from the most
recent date on which interest has been paid or duly provided for or, if no interest has been paid, from the date of original issuance
until such principal amount or overdue

installment is paid or made available for payment. We will pay interest semi-annually in arrears on March 15 and September 15 of
each year, beginning on September 15, 2015, each of which we refer to as an interest payment date.
Interest payments for the notes shall be computed and paid on the basis of a 360-day year consisting of twelve 30-day
months. In the event that any date on which interest is payable on the notes is not a business day, then payment of the interest
payable on such date will be made on the next succeeding day that is a business day (and without any interest or other payment in
respect of any such delay), except that, if such next succeeding business day is in the next succeeding calendar year, such
payment will be made on the immediately preceding business day, in each case with the same force and effect as if such payment
was made on the date such payment was originally payable.
The interest payable by us on a note on any interest payment date and on the maturity date, subject to certain exceptions,
will be paid to the person in whose name such note is registered at the close of business on or immediately preceding such
interest payment date, whether or not a business day. However, interest that we pay on the maturity date or a Redemption Date
(as defined below) will be payable to the person to whom the principal will be payable.
Opt iona l re de m pt ion of t he not e s
Each series of notes will be redeemable, at the sole option of the Company, in whole at any time or in part from time to time
(a "Redemption Date"), at a redemption price (the "Redemption Price") equal to the greater of (1) 100% of the aggregate principal
amount of the notes to be redeemed and (2) an amount equal to the sum of the present values of the remaining scheduled
payments for principal of and interest on the notes to be redeemed, not including any portion of the payments of interest accrued
as of such Redemption Date, discounted to such Redemption Date on a semi-annual basis (assuming a 360-day year consisting of
twelve 30-day months) at the Treasury Rate plus 15 basis points with respect to the 2020 notes and 20 basis points with respect to
the 2025 notes; plus, in each case (1) and (2), accrued and unpaid interest on the principal amount of the notes to be redeemed
to, but excluding, such Redemption Date.
For each series of notes:
"Treasury Rate" means (1) the yield, under the heading which represents the average for the immediately preceding week,
appearing in the most recently published statistical release designated "H.15(519)" or any successor publication which is published
weekly by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System and which establishes yields on actively traded United States
Treasury securities adjusted to constant maturity under the caption "Treasury Constant Maturities", for the maturity corresponding
to the Comparable Treasury Issue (if no maturity is within three months before or after the remaining life, yields for the two
published maturities most closely corresponding to the Comparable Treasury Issue will be determined and the Treasury Rate will

be interpolated or extrapolated from such yields on a straight line basis, rounding to the nearest month), or (2) if such release (or
any successor release) is not published during the week preceding the calculation date or does not contain such yields, the rate
per year equal to the semi-annual equivalent yield to maturity of the Comparable Treasury Issue, calculated using a price for the
Comparable Treasury Issue (expressed as a percentage of its principal amount) equal to the Comparable Treasury Price for such
Redemption Date. The Treasury Rate shall be calculated on the third business day preceding the Redemption Date.
"Comparable Treasury Issue" means the United States Treasury security selected by the Independent Investment Banker
as having a maturity comparable to the remaining term of the notes to be redeemed that would be utilized, at the time of selection
and in accordance with customary financial practice, in pricing new issues of corporate debt securities of comparable maturity to the
remaining term of the notes.

redemption, unless we default in the payment of the Redemption Price.
