Life/Dependent Life

We offer basic life insurance—provided by Securian Financial—at no cost to full-time benefits-eligible faculty, staff, and bargaining unit members, plus the option to purchase additional coverage for themselves and their dependents.

Such insurance can be an important way of protecting your family’s financial future by helping to offset lost income, to pay expenses such as medical and funeral, or to meet day-to-day financial obligations. And our life insurance policies also give you access to free lifestyle benefits such as travel assistance, legacy planning services, and beneficiary financial counseling.
