NU Online News Service, Aug. 12, 6:45 p.m. – Minnesota Life Insurance Company, St. Paul, and Kemper National Services, Long Grove, Ill., have joined forces to offer large employers coordinated access to life and disability benefits.

Kemper National, a unit of Kemper Insurance Companies, will offer its short- and long-term disability program to potential clients of Minnesota Life, and Minnesota Life’s group division will offer its group term, universal life and variable universal life insurance products to Kemper clients.

Earlier this year, Minnesota Life announced a similar agreement with All Net, the employee benefit network of Allianz A.G., Munich, to provide group life and disability insurance programs to All Net’s multinational clients.
