Cigna's Roots

Cigna was formed in 1982 through the combination of the Connecticut General Corporation (CG) and the Insurance Company of North America Corporation (INA). Today Cigna's logo, the Tree of Life, symbolizes the corporation’s culture, mission and products.


Like a strong tree, Cigna has deep roots. INA was founded in 1792 in Philadelphia after meetings in Independence Hall. Connecticut General was founded in Hartford as a life insurance company. Cigna’s formation combined a leading property-casualty insurer with a leading supplier of life insurance and employee benefits.
