(e) At its meeting on May 1, 2018, the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors of Kemper Corporation (the “Company”) approved amendments to the Kemper Executive Performance Plan (the “EPP”). The EPP amendments were made primarily to remove references to Section 162(m) of the Internal Revenue Code (“162(m)”) and related provisions due to the repeal of the exemption for performance-based compensation under 162(m) under the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act signed into law in December 2017. The EPP amendments additionally broadened the scope to include the Company’s Chief Financial Officer as a participant, removed references to multi-year awards and revised the annual limitation on individual awards to a single $6 million cap from a two-part cap of $6 million divided into annual and multi-year awards, due to the fact that the multi-year component of the Company’s incentive compensation program was collapsed into a single annual award.

Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
