Your plans tailored to your group

Based on our nearly 100 years of experience in the group life market, we will recommend solutions to enhance your plans and simplify your processes.

Our group life insurance and accidental death and dismemberment products are customizable for your organization, allowing you to select features like guaranteed coverage, dependent coverage, waiver of premium for disabled employees and continuation options including portability and conversion.

We offer an array of funding arrangements and your organization may choose to offer any of our products on an employer-paid or employee-paid basis.

Helping to reduce your workload

Our administration and record-keeping solutions – like management of your employees’ beneficiary records and coverage amounts – are designed to reduce the burden on your benefits staff.

We also coordinate with many third-party administrators (TPAs) and all major disability carriers to offer seamless integration during enrollment and at claims time.

Life insurance products

Group term life

Our most popular and affordable product, group term life insurance is available as an employer-provided benefit as well as an employee-paid voluntary benefit.

Under the federal tax code, employer-paid coverage amounts up to $50,000 are generally income tax-free to employees.

Group universal life

Group universal life (GUL) provides employees with permanent1 life insurance protection and the potential for tax-deferred cash accumulation with a fixed rate of return.

Employees may choose to pay only the cost of insurance or to make additional contributions to a cash value account that can be accessed through loans or withdrawals.2

Employees can continue their GUL coverage when they change jobs or retire.

Variable group universal life

Our variable group universal life (VGUL) product offers employees permanent1 life insurance protection and the potential to achieve cash value growth through a number of subaccount investment options.

Employees can personalize their subaccount investments based on their time horizon and risk tolerance to help work toward personal financial objectives.3

Employees may also take advantage of our guaranteed account, which provides a fixed rate of return on invested funds.4

VGUL coverage may be continued if an employee leaves your company or is no longer eligible.

Group accidental death products

Group accidental death and dismemberment (AD&D)

If an employee dies or loses the ability to use a body part as the result of a covered accident, AD&D provides additional benefits for their loved ones. An affordable protection benefit, AD&D can be combined with a life insurance product, offered as a stand-alone product, or both.

Our product is customizable with features such as felonious assault coverage or survivor education benefits.

Business travel accident (BTA)

Available as a rider to a term life policy or as an additional AD&D benefit, business travel accident provides a lump-sum payment if an insured employee dies or is injured from a covered accident while traveling for business.

The guarantees for the Guaranteed Account are based on the financial strength and claims-paying ability of Minnesota Life Insurance Company and Securian Life Insurance Company, which are important; however, they do not have any bearing on the performance of the variable subaccount. Investments in the variable subaccounts will fluctuate and the cash value available for loans, withdrawals or redemption may be worth more or less than when originally invested.

The variable investment options are subject to market risk, including loss of principal.
