How do I make my FEGLI life insurance election?

When you are newly appointed or transferred to a FEGLI eligible position, you are automatically enrolled in FEGLI Basic life insurance.  To elect any Optional coverage, or to waive Basic, you must complete a Life Insurance Election (SF 2817) and return it to your employing agency’s human resources office. Your agency may also offer an electronic enrollment option. Contact your supervisor if you need assistance locating your human resources office.

If you do not submit an election form within 60 days of becoming eligible, you remain enrolled in Basic only
