How do I increase my FEGLI life insurance coverage based on a Life Event?

FEGLI qualifying life events are marriage, divorce, death of your spouse, and acquisition of an eligible child.  If you experience a life event and you are a FEGLI-eligible employee, you can elect any coverage the FEGLI program offers.  Submit a Life Insurance Election to your employing agency’s human resources office within 60 days after the date the event.  You can also submit your election before the event and provide proof of the event to your agency within 60 days after the date of the event.

Your agency may also offer online enrollment through an internal human resources portal.

A life event is one way an employee can elect or increase FEGLI coverage.  Other ways are during an infrequent life insurance open season, or at any time by passing a physical exam.
