Group now authorized to offer the popular insurance program in Chandler, AZ.

Chandler, AZ 1 June 2012 —The Hartford announced today that it is making its award-winning AARP®-

branded auto insurance program available through Tudor Insurance Group in Chandler, AZ.

Tudor Insurance Group was chosen after satisfying a number of eligibility requirements, which included:

demonstrating a commitment to community service; meeting a high-level of business and ethical standards;

and completing a training program designed to address the needs of the 50+ population.

“For more than 25 years, the industry-leading AARP-branded auto insurance program from The Hartford has

been extremely popular,” said Jim Flynn, vice president, The Hartford. “Much of the success of this program is

due to innovative product features and a commitment to truly understand and support our customers. We are

thrilled to now be able to offer these benefits through our independent agent partners.”

According to research from The Hartford, the majority of AARP members prefer the advice and counsel of a

local agent when making decisions about their insurance. Based on this research and strong customer

demand, The Hartford is offering the AARP-branded auto insurance program through select, authorized

independent agents. These products were previously only available from The Hartford by phone, the Internet

and by mail.

The AARP-branded auto insurance program is designed in consultation with The Hartford Advance 50 Team,

which helps to tailor products and services specifically to the interests and needs of Boomers and older adults.

Other unique hallmarks of the program include:

o Lifetime Continuation Agreement — assures that the customer’s insurance policy will not be dropped as

long as a few simple requirements are met.

o RecoverCare — helps customers pay for assistance with daily errands and responsibilities, like

cooking, cleaning, shopping, dog walking, transportation and yard work if they are injured in an auto

accident.

o Standard 12-month rate protection versus the traditional six month policies offered by most companies.
