Benefit-eligible employees may elect to purchase up to an additional $300,000 of Group Term Life and AD&D insurance. Optional Life insurance is available in $25,000 increments. Rates are based on the employee's age and coverage level elected. Premiums automatically increase according to 5-year age bands.

Optional Term Life Insurance elected during newly benefit-eligible waiting period does not require Evidence of Insurability.
Optional Term Life elected after the waiting period is subject to Evidence of Insurability and approval by Minnesota Life.

Retiree continuation of coverage is limited to the coverage you were enrolled in at the time of retirement or a lesser amount. Reduced coverage cannot be increased; terminated coverage cannot be reinstated. To keep your Term Life & AD&D insurance in retirement, you must make an election within 30 days after you retire.
