Frequently Asked Questions Insurance

Can a court order serve as an assignment of FEGLI life insurance?

No. A court order can direct that the insured individual assign (give up ownership of) his/her life insurance coverage under the FEGLI Program. But unless and until the insured individual files a valid assignment form (RI 76-10 Assignment), the insurance is not assigned.

This is different than a designation. If valid, a court order can serve as a designation of beneficiary for life insurance purposes even if the insured individual doesn't complete a designation form.
