However, most employees are already covered for this insurance as described in the next section, "Base Insurance for Benefits-Eligible Employees".

Base Insurance for Benefits-Eligible Employees

Benefits-eligible employees are automatically enrolled in $25,000 basic life insurance administered through Minnesota Life, which includes Travel Services. Travel Services are available to benefits-eligible employees as well as their spouses and dependent children. Information about the Travel Services provided through Minnesota Life can be found at http://www.usg.edu/assets/hr/benefits_docs/F66715-23_Travel_Assistance_Summary.pdf
