Optional Group Life Insurance Benefit

If you are enrolled in the Optional Group Life Insurance Program and meet the qualifications for retirement, you may continue a portion of your coverage upon leaving employment. You, as well as your spouse and dependent children, must have been continuously covered during the 60 months before you leave employment.


If you are currently enrolled in the optional plan but not eligible to continue coverage when you retire or defer retirement, you as well as your spouse and dependent children, can convert your coverage to an individual policy within 31 days of the last day of the month in which you leave your position. Proof of good health will not be required. You will be billed for the premiums. Submit a Conversion of Group Life Insurance Enrollment (VRS-35) to Minnesota Life.

Keep Your Beneficiary Up to Date

VRS pays benefits according to the latest beneficiary designation in your record. For more information, see Naming a Beneficiary.
