What is FEGLI?

The Federal Employees' Group Life Insurance (FEGLI) program is the largest group life insurance program for Federal and Postal employees and retirees in the U.S.

FEGLI consists of basic life insurance coverage and three different options: Option A – Standard, Option B – Additional, and Option C – Family.

  • Basic Insurance Amount (BIA), is equal to the greater of your annual rate of basic pay rounded up to the next higher $1,000 + $2,000, or $10,000. The Government pays 1/3 of the cost of your Basic life insurance and you pay 2/3. For this insurance, you pay $0.16 biweekly (or $0.3467 monthly) for each $1,000 of your coverage. If you are a postal service employee, USPS pays 100% of the basic life insurance cost.
  • Option A (Standard) Insurance, is equal to $10,000.
  • Option B (Additional) Insurance, is equal to 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 times your annual basic pay, after rounding up to the next $1,000.
  • Option C (Family) Insurance, employees may elect 1 to 5 multiples of the coverage amounts for a spouse and eligible dependent children ($5,000 for a spouse and $2,500 for each dependent child).
