Life Insurance

The State of Florida offers term life insurance to eligible full-time and part-time employees.

Basic Term Life Insurance Coverage and Premiums

A Basic Life benefit of $25,000 is available to all full-time employees (part-time employees pay prorated premiums based on their FTE and OPS employees pay the $4.54 monthly premium).

Accidental Death & Dismemberment (AD&D)

Basic life insurance coverage includes AD&D coverage. In the event of accidental death or dismemberment, payment will be made based on the injury's severity - equal to between 25 percent and 100 percent of the coverage amount.

For more information on life and AD&D benefits, see the Minnesota Life Brochure or contact Minnesota Life at (888) 826-2756.

Optional Coverage

Salaried employees (OPS are not eligible) who enroll in basic term life insurance can also buy additional term life insurance - from 1 to 7 times base annual earnings, up to a maximum optional coverage benefit of $1,000,000. Medical underwriting may be required. You pay the entire cost of optional coverage. Click here to determine your monthly cost.

You Name Your Beneficiary

To designate or change your beneficiary online, go to, or get a form at Forms and Publications and send it to Minnesota Life’'s Tallahassee branch office at the address on the form. If you do not designate a beneficiary in writing, Minnesota Life pays the proceeds according to the default beneficiary provisions of the policy in this order: your spouse, children, parents and the personal representative of your estate. Payments made to an estate, however, may result in a reduction in total benefits due to taxes and probate costs. Watch this video to learn more.

Accelerated Death Benefit

Both the basic and optional life programs include an advanced benefit if a covered member receives a terminal illness diagnosis that anticipates death within a one-year period. You may be eligible for an advanced payment of up to 100 percent of your combined basic/optional life insurance benefits.
