Item 5.03    Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year.
On March 16, 2021, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of Unum Group (the “Company”) adopted amendments to the Company's Amended and Restated Bylaws (the Bylaws).

Article II, Section 9 of the Bylaws was amended to include a designee of the Board Chairman or Lead Independent Director, as applicable, among the persons who may preside over meetings of the stockholders. This section was also revised to remove a requirement that the person presiding over such meetings announce when the polls open and close for each matter upon which stockholders will vote. Article II, Section 10 of the Bylaws was added to require that certain stockholder communications be delivered in writing, rather than in an electronic transmission. Article III, Section 1 of the Bylaws was amended to change the mandatory director retirement age to 75 from 72. Section 2 of this Article was also amended to limit the number of directors a stockholder may nominate for election at an annual or special meeting to the number of directors to be elected at such meeting. Article V, Section 1 of the Bylaws was amended to clarify that written notices to registered owners of uncertificated shares may also be provided by electronic transmission. In addition, Article VII, Section 5 of the Bylaws was amended to specify the federal district courts of the United States as the exclusive forum for actions arising under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, unless the Company consents in writing to an alternative forum, and to provide for consent to the provisions of Article VII, Section 5 through acquiring or holding the Company’s capital stock.

The above description of the amendments to the Bylaws is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Bylaws, as amended and restated, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 3.1 and incorporated herein by reference.
