CIGNA Internship Profile
CIGNA was formed from two early American insurance companies. The first was founded as the Insurance Company of North America (INA) in 1792 and ran out of Philadelphia’s Independence Hall. As the first insurance company in America (then offering mostly marine insurance), INA is the oldest in operation today. The company even paid out life insurance policies for the Great Chicago Fire. In 1865, the governor of Connecticut signed an agreement to create the Connecticut General Life Insurance Company (CG)—the second company. CG and INA merged in 1981, becoming the insurance firm now known as CIGNA. Today, CIGNA is a health benefits company with a portfolio of health, pharmacy, behavioral, dental, disability, life, accident and international businesses.
