Yes, two Federal employees who are married may BOTH elect Option C life insurance coverage. Any eligible children would be covered under both policies.
FEGLI Option C covers the lives of the enrolled employee/retiree's eligible family members.
Eligible family members for Option C include a spouse (including a valid common law marriage) and eligible dependent children. Eligible dependent children must be unmarried and under age 22, or if age 22 or over, incapable of self-support because of a mental or physical disability that existed before the child reached age 22.
Eligible dependent children include natural children, adopted children, stepchildren (if they live with you in a regular parent-child relationship), recognized natural children, and foster children (if they live with you in a regular parent-child relationship). Stillborn children are not covered.
If you have any questions about eligible family members, please consult your human resources office. That office is responsible for determining eligibility.
Option C comes in 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 multiples of coverage. Each multiple is equal to $5,000 for a spouse and $2,500 for each eligible dependent child.
If you are enrolled in Option C life insurance, complete the FE-6 DEP, Statement of Claim, Option C -- Family Life Insurance according to instructions on the form. If you need help, contact OFEGLI at 1-800-633-4542.
