Frequently Asked Questions Insurance

If I get married or acquire a child, do I qualify to enroll in FEGLI Life Insurance?

If you are an employee in a FEGLI-eligible position, a Qualifying Life Event allows you to enroll in FEGLI Basic, Option A, Option B (up to 5 multiples), and/or Option C (up to 5 multiples).  You must enroll in Basic to be able to enroll in any or all Optional coverage.

There are four FEGLI Qualifying Life Events:

  • Marriage
  • Divorce
  • Death of a spouse
  • Acquisition of an eligible child

To enroll based on a Qualifying Life Event, you must submit a Life Insurance Election (SF 2817) to your human resources office within 60 days after the day of the event.  For more information, contact your human resources office and review page 4, row 2 of the Election form.
