If you are eligible for State benefits and do not have a life insurance beneficiary on file with Securian Financial (formerly Minnesota Life), you are strongly encouraged to provide this important information!
What do I need to do?
You can designate your beneficiaries either online or by paper form:
- Online: Go to https://www.lifebenefits.com/. Then, log in using your unique user ID and password. If you do not currently have any beneficiaries on file, your user ID and instructions for retrieving your password have been emailed to you.
Why is a beneficiary important?
Choosing a beneficiary ensures your life insurance benefits will be distributed according to your wishes and speeds up the payment process, in the event of your death. Learn more from Securian about the importance of having beneficiaries on file.
What if I didn’t sign up for life insurance?
As a State benefits-eligible employee you are automatically enrolled in State of Illinois’ basic term life insurance in an amount equal to your annual salary.
See State Group Life Insurance, or contact Securian Financial or University Payroll & Benefits (UPB).
