REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM

To the Plan Administrative Committee and Participants of
Kemper Corporation 401(k) Savings Plan (formerly known as the Unitrin, Inc. 401(k) Savings Plan)
Chicago, IL

We have audited the accompanying statements of net assets available for benefits of the Kemper Corporation 401(k) Savings Plan (formerly known as the Unitrin, Inc. 401(k) Savings Plan) (the “Plan”) as of December 31, 2011 and 2010, and the related statement of changes in net assets available for benefits for the year ended December 31, 2011. These financial statements are the responsibility of the Plan's management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audits.

We conducted our audits in accordance with standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. The Plan is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting. Our audits included consideration of internal control over financial reporting as a basis for designing audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Plan's internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion. An audit also includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements, assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.

In our opinion, such financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the net assets available for benefits of the Plan as of December 31, 2011 and 2010, and the changes in net assets available for benefits for the year ended December 31, 2011 in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

Our audits were conducted for the purpose of forming an opinion on the basic financial statements taken as a whole. The accompanying supplemental schedule of assets (held at end of year) as of December 31, 2011 is presented for the purpose of additional analysis and is not a required part of the basic financial statements, but is supplementary information required by the Department of Labor's Rules and Regulations for Reporting and Disclosure under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974. The supplemental schedule is the responsibility of the Plan's management. Such schedule has been subjected to the auditing procedures applied in our audit of the basic 2011 financial statements and, in our opinion, is fairly stated in all material respects when considered in relation to the basic financial statements taken as a whole.

Notes to the Financial Statements
Note 1 – Basis of Presentation
The financial statements of the Kemper Corporation 401(k) Savings Plan (formerly known as the Unitrin, Inc. 401(k) Savings Plan) (the “Plan”) included herein have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”).
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and changes therein and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. Actual results could differ materially from those estimates. Investment securities, in general, are exposed to various risks, such as interest rate risk, credit risk, and overall market volatility risk. Due to the level of risk associated with certain investment securities, it is reasonably possible that changes in values of investment securities will occur in the near term and such values could be materially different from the amounts reported in the financial statements.
Significant Accounting Policies
Participant-directed Investments, which include collective trusts, an employee stock ownership ("ESOP") fund and mutual fund shares, are stated at fair value. Fair value is the price that would be received to sell an asset or transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants on the measurement date. Shares of mutual funds are valued at quoted market prices that represent the net asset value of shares held by the Plan at the respective dates presented in the Statements of Net Assets Available for Benefits. The Plan uses net asset value of the shares held in common collective trusts that do not own fully benefit-responsive investment contracts as a practical expedient for determining fair value. The fair value of the ESOP fund is generally valued using quoted market prices of the underlying common stock. Participants are generally able to change investment options on a daily basis without restrictions.
The Wells Fargo Stable Return Fund G is a common collective trust that owns fully benefit-responsive investment contracts. The Statements of Net Assets Available for Benefits present the fund at fair value, as well as an additional line item showing a net adjustment from fair value to contract value for fully benefit-responsive contracts owned by the fund. The Plan uses net asset value of the shares held by the Plan as a practical expedient for determining fair value, whereas contract value represents principal plus accrued interest. The Statement of Changes in Net Assets Available for Benefits is presented on a contract value basis. Transactions with the Wells Fargo Stable Return Fund G are generally executed on a contract value basis. The Plan believes that the occurrence of events that would cause the Wells Fargo Stable Return Fund G to transact at less than contract value is not probable.
Purchases and sales of securities are recorded on a trade-date basis. Interest income is recorded on an accrual basis. Dividend income is recorded on the ex-dividend date.
Loans from participants are included in Notes Receivable from Participants and are stated at unpaid principal balances.
Management fees and operating expenses charged to the Plan for investments in certain mutual funds are deducted from income earned and are not separately identified. Consequently, these management fees and operating expenses are recognized as reductions of investment return for such investments. Administrative expenses of the Plan are paid by Kemper Corporation (formerly known as Unitrin, Inc.) (“Kemper” or the “Company”).
Benefits provided to participants are recorded when paid. Account balances of participants who have elected to withdraw from the Plan, but have not yet been paid, were $21 thousand and $62 thousand at December 31, 2011 and 2010, respectively.
On March 9, 2012, the Plan refunded $44 thousand of excess contributions to certain Plan participants related to the 2011 plan year.

Note 2 – Plan Description
The following summary description of the Plan is for general information only. A more detailed description of the Plan provisions is found in the formal Plan document and in summary materials distributed to Plan participants.
The Plan is a defined contribution plan that is available to employees of Kemper and certain of its subsidiaries (collectively, the “Companies”) and is subject to the provisions of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, as amended (“ERISA”). Employees of the Companies generally become eligible to participate in the Plan on the first day of the month following the employee’s first full month of employment. Subject to Internal Revenue Code (the “Code”) limitations, participants are allowed to defer and contribute between 1% and 60% of their compensation to the Plan. Employees are also permitted to make rollover contributions from tax-qualified plans. Employees of the Companies generally become eligible to receive a Kemper matching contribution on the first day of the month following the employee’s first full year of employment. Kemper provides a matching contribution of 50% of the first 6% of compensation contributed each pay period by the participant.
Participant contributions, including rollover contributions, and earnings thereon are 100% vested. Participants are 100% vested in Company contributions after three years of employment. The Plan provides for 100% vesting of Company contributions in the event of a change of control, as defined in the Plan, or on attainment of normal retirement age, death, or disability.
An individual account is maintained by the Plan’s record keeper for each participant and updated with contributions, actual investment income or loss and withdrawals. Each participant may suspend, resume, or change his or her rate of contribution at any time. If certain criteria are met, participants may withdraw all or a portion of their vested account balances, subject to certain restrictions. In addition, participants may borrow from their accounts, subject to certain limitations, at prevailing interest rates as determined by the Plan administrator. Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. serves as the Plan’s record keeper and trustee.
Forfeited nonvested accounts are used to reduce employer contributions. Forfeited nonvested accounts were $56 thousand and $41 thousand at December 31, 2011 and 2010, respectively.
Although the Company has not expressed any intent to terminate the Plan or to discontinue contributions, it is free to do so at any time, subject to the provisions set forth in ERISA. Should the Plan be terminated at some future date, all participants become 100% vested in benefits earned as of the Plan termination date.

Note 4 – Fair Value Measurements
The Plan uses a hierarchical framework that prioritizes and ranks the market price observability used in fair value measurements. Market price observability is affected by a number of factors, including the type of asset or liability and the characteristics specific to the asset or liability being measured. Assets and liabilities with readily available, active, quoted market prices or for which fair value can be measured from actively quoted prices generally are deemed to have a higher degree of market price observability and a lesser degree of judgment used in measuring fair value.
The Plan classifies the inputs used to measure fair value into one of three levels as follows:
Level 1 – Quoted prices in an active market for identical assets or liabilities;
Level 2 – Observable inputs other than Level 1, quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets, quoted prices for identical or similar assets and liabilities in markets that are not active, and model-derived prices whose inputs are observable or whose significant value drivers are observable; and
Level 3 – Assets and liabilities whose significant value drivers are unobservable.
Observable inputs are based on market data obtained from independent sources, while unobservable inputs are based on the Plan’s market assumptions. Unobservable inputs require significant management judgment or estimation. In some cases, the inputs used to measure an asset or liability may fall into different levels of the fair value hierarchy. In those instances, the fair value measurement is required to be classified using the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement. Such determination requires significant management judgment. The Plan is not permitted to adjust quoted market prices in an active market, even if the Plan owns a large investment, the sale of which could reasonably impact the quoted price.

Note 5 – Federal Income Tax Status
The Plan is exempt from income taxes under Section 401(a) of the Code. On January 29, 2008, the Plan filed for a new determination letter with the Internal Revenue Service ("IRS"). In connection with such filing, the Plan received a favorable determination letter dated February 19, 2010 from the IRS. The Plan has been amended since the filing for such determination letter. The Company believes that the Plan, as amended since such filing, is currently designed and operated in compliance with the applicable requirements of the Code, and the Plan and related trust continue to be exempt from income taxes. Accordingly, no provision for income taxes or uncertain tax positions have been included in the accompanying financial statements. The tax statute of limitations related to the Plan is open for the five years ended December 31, 2011.
Under Federal income tax statutes, regulations, and interpretations, income taxes on amounts that a participant accumulates in the Plan are deferred and therefore not included in the participant’s taxable income until those amounts are actually distributed. Except for certain contributions made prior to April 1, 1993, contributions are considered pre-tax deposits and are not subject to Federal income taxes at the time of contribution. Prior to April 1, 1993, certain contributions were made on an after-tax basis and are not subject to income tax when they are distributed to the participant because they have already been taxed. A participant’s account balance, except for after-tax contributions made prior to April 1, 1993, is taxable income and generally is taxed at ordinary income tax rates when distributed. However, favorable tax treatment through special averaging provisions may apply to participants of a certain age. An additional 10 percent Federal income tax penalty may be imposed on all taxable income distributed to a participant unless the distribution meets certain requirements contained within Section 72 of the Code.
Taxable distributions from the Plan generally are subject to a 20 percent Federal income tax withholding unless directly rolled over into another eligible employer plan or Individual Retirement Account. Distributions of shares of Kemper common stock generally are not subject to the 20 percent withholding, and special tax rules may apply to the calculation of “net unrealized appreciation” on such stock.
If the Code and the Plan’s requirements concerning loans to participants are satisfied, the amounts loaned to participants will not be treated as taxable distributions. If, however, the loan requirements are not satisfied and a default occurs, the loans will be treated as distributions from the Plan for Federal income tax purposes, and the tax consequences discussed above for distributions may apply. Interest payments made by the participant on their loans are generally not tax deductible.
Although the IRS has not indicated that any of the Plan's tax returns are under examination, the 2010 and 2009 tax returns for Kemper Corporation are currently under examination. Such examination may also result in the examination of the Plan's tax returns for those same years.
