Frequently Asked Questions Insurance

If I elect a Living Benefit, do I have to continue to pay for my Basic FEGLI life insurance benefits?

If you elect a full Living Benefit, you stop paying premiums and the Government no longer pays its contributions for your Basic life coverage.

If you elect a partial Living Benefit, your agency will adjust the withholdings and contributions for your post-election Basic Insurance Amount.

The amount of the post-election Basic does not change. Subsequent salary changes have no effect on the Basic amount. However, if you have Option B coverage, it will continue to change with salary changes. A Living Benefit election has no effect on your any Optional insurance you may have.
