Frequently Asked Questions Insurance

What happens if I die in an automobile accident or if I lose my sight or a limb as a result of an accident?

FEGLI Basic and Option A each include Accidental Death and Dismemberment (AD&D) coverage for employees at no additional charge. AD&D coverage cannot be carried into retirement. AD&D benefits are paid in addition to regular death benefits.

For the Office of Federal Employees' Group Life Insurance to pay AD&D benefits, the death or loss must occur within one year after the accident and be a direct result of bodily injury sustained from that accident.

AD&D coverage in Basic is equal to the amount of your Basic insurance. AD&D coverage in Option A is equal to $10,000.

For more information about AD&D, see the FEGLI Handbook.
