The Federal Government established the Federal Employees’ Group Life Insurance (FEGLI) Program on August 28, 1954.
It is the largest group life insurance program in the world, covering over 4 million Federal employees and retirees, as well as many of their family members.
To calculate “Basic Coverage” round your annual salary up to the nearest $1000, and add $2000. For employees 45 and older, basic coverage equals this amount.
If your salary is $50,300, your base coverage would be $52,000 ($50,000 plus $2,000). Accidental death is included. The “Basic Coverage” has valuable options in retirement.
