The State of Mississippi offers group term life insurance coverage for active full-time employees. Employees who elect life insurance coverage should designate one or more beneficiaries with Minnesota Life Insurance Company, an affiliate of Securian Financial Group to ensure that any benefits are paid in accordance with their wishes.
