Retiree Voluntary Benefits
Benefits for Life, the retiree-paid, optional coverage program offered through the State of Michigan, is designed to help you be safe, be protected, and be prepared.
The program offers you the opportunity to apply for coverage in key benefit areas.
The Benefits for Life offerings do not replace your State-sponsored benefit plans. Instead, the program offers additional financial protection with premiums payable through the convenience of pension deduction. You can customize your coverage by choosing from a range of plans that offer a combination of benefits and features that can help meet your personal and family insurance needs.
