Fegli Open Season....do Your Homework

Healthy Senior Federal Employees Should Beware during FEGLI Open Season!

OPM has announced an open season for Federal Employee Group Life Insurance, FEGLI program. Beginning September 1, 2016, eligible federal employees will be able to increase their FEGLI benefits without regard to medical concerns.

FEGLI Option “B” allows federal employees to insure 1-5 times salary. Before exercising this option, healthy employees should consider the following:

  • FEGLI Option “B” rates increase 82% at age 55
  • FEGLI Option “B” rates increase 120% at age 60
  • FEGLI Option “B” rates increase 23% at age 65
  • FEGLI Option “B” rates increase 78% at age 70
  • FEGLI Option “B” rates increase 88% at age 75
