StanCorp Financial Group Inc. (NYSE:SFG) managed to increase net income during the first quarter in spite of the effects of painfully low interest rates on new investments, and on the discount rates it uses to value new long-term disability (LTD) insurance claims.

The company is reporting $47 million in net income for the first quarter on $723 million in revenue, compared with $35 million in net income on $741 million in revenue for the first quarter of 2012.
