Frequently Asked Questions Insurance

How much FEGLI life insurance coverage do I have?



If you are a Federal RETIREE or compensationer:


OPM's Retirement Office is the only office with access to your FEGLI life insurance records.  Your FEGLI records are not available online.  You can contact Retirement at 1-888-767-6738 or 
retire@opm.gov. You can request a Verification of Life Insurance (VOLI) to be mailed to you.  The VOLI will include information on your life insurance coverage.  


Retirement's phone lines are open Monday through Friday 7:40 am to 5:00 pm eastern time. The phone lines can get extremely busy so we recommend calling early in the morning or late in the evening when the lines are less busy. Have your retirement claim number (CSA/CSF) or social security number handy. 



If you wish to change your FEGLI life insurance beneficiaries, complete this form and mail it to OPM's Retirement Office at the address on page 3:

If you are a Federal EMPLOYEE:


Contact your human resources office.  The office that maintains your Official Personnel Folder (OPF) or its equivalent is the only office with access to your FEGLI life insurance records. If you do not know what office that is or how to contact them, check with your supervisor. 



You can also look on a copy of your most recent Standard Form 50, Notification of Personnel Action, to determine the coverage you currently have:



  1. In Block 27 on that form, there is a 2-character code that represents your current coverage and a definition of the code. 
  2. You can look up the codes and their translation at http://archive.opm.gov/insure/life/reference/handbook/sf50tbl.asp 
  3. You can then use the FEGLI Calculator to determine the current value of your FEGLI by inputting your current age, salary and type(s) of FEGLI coverage.
