Exercise your voting privilege as a Humana stockholder
Humana associates who participate in our companys Retirement Savings Plan 401(k) and have invested funds in the Humana Common Stock Fund have the right to vote on items being presented at the special meeting of Humana Inc. Stockholders, scheduled for October 19, 2015. You may submit one vote for each share held in your Humana Common Stock account as of September 16, 2015.
What documents do you need to vote?
Humana and Aetna Inc. have produced and filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, or SEC, a document called the joint proxy statement - that details all of the information the companys stockholders need in order to make informed votes with respect to the matters to be considered at the special meeting. The joint proxy statement became available to stockholders and the public after Humana filed it with the SEC on August 28, 2015. In order to vote, you must also receive an official voting card. We have mailed copies of the joint proxy statement and official voting card to all 401(k) participants who have invested funds in the Humana Common Stock Fund.
When can participants in the Humana Retirement Savings Plan vote?
If you wish to vote, you may do so AFTER you receive your joint proxy statement and voting card. You then must vote BEFORE 11:59 p.m., EDT on Wednesday, October 14, 2015, through Humanas Retirement Savings Plan Trustee - Charles Schwab - with Broadridge acting as tabulator. If your voting instructions are received by 11:59 p.m. EDT on Wednesday, October 14, 2015, the Trustee will submit a proxy that reflects your instructions. If you do not give voting instructions (or give them late), the Trustee will vote your interest in the Humana Common Stock Fund in the same proportion as the shares attributed to the Humana Retirement Savings Plan actually voted.
