Life Insurance

The State of Iowa's life insurance plan provides your family financial protection in the event of your death. If you are a full-time employee, the life insurance plan provides you with a basic term life insurance benefit at no cost to you. In addition, you have an opportunity to purchase additional (supplemental) life insurance coverage at group rates through payroll deduction.
