Frequently Asked Questions Insurance

How do I enroll or increase my FEGLI life insurance by getting a physical?

If at least one year has passed since the effective date of your last waiver of some FEGLI life insurance coverage, you may get a physical exam at your own expense using the Request for Insurance

You and your human resources office must complete part of the form. You then take the form to your physician. He or she will complete the rest of the form and send it to the Office of Federal Employees' Group Life Insurance (OFEGLI). If OFEGLI approves your request, they will notify your human resources office. Your human resources office will automatically enroll you in Basic insurance, unless you already have Basic. You will have 60 days from OFEGLI's approval to elect Option A and/or up to 5 multiples of Option B.
