Jackson National Life expansion plans include 1,000 new jobs

In April, one of Lansing’s largest employers announced plans to bring 1,000 new jobs to the region.  Jackson National Life Insurance Company will spend more than $100-million to double the size of its headquarters in Alaeidon Township.  Construction could begin later this year, pending a number of regulatory steps.

The project represents steady growth in the insurance industry in Lansing.  The announcement comes two years after the Accident Fund Insurance Company completed its new expansion project in downtown Lansing.

Dave Zybal,  the assistant vice-president of government relations for Jackson National Life, and Danielle Robinson, Corporate Social Responsibility Program Manager, spoke with Current State host Mark Bashore.
