    We own Aflac (AFL) in our family’s dividend stocks portfolio and looking forward to the raise. Even with a streak of 32 consecutive years of dividend increase, it appears AFL is still primed to continue doing just that. With a payout ratio of just 26.9%, we think AFL is a great option for those looking for safe dividends that will likely continue to grow each and every year!

    Cheers to more dividends and raises! AFFJ
