Financial & Retirement Planning and Life Insurance for ATF Employees

Are you looking for Group Term Life Insurance for Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives employees, a policy you can count on throughout the federal service and beyond? WAEPA is the FEGLI alternative available today.

If you’ve recently joined the ranks of Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives employees and meet a few other qualifications, you probably qualify to be a member of WAEPA – Worldwide Assurance for Employees of Public Agencies.

Across most age bands, the majority of prospective WAEPA members discover that they can obtain better coverage at superior premiums compared to FEGLI. And that’s only the beginning!

Throughout our history, we’ve provided insurance access to more than 100,000 federal workers and their dependents. Our current membership stands at more than 44,000.

As a WAEPA member, you’ll benefit from:

Group Term Life Insurance

Group Term Life Insurance from WAEPA provides up to $1.5 million in coverage for eligible members, which will not be lost if you change jobs or retire – even after leaving the federal government. An eligible member’s coverage also extends to spouse and children.

Guaranteed Issue Life Insurance for New Employees

Guaranteed Issue Life Insurance means qualifying federal employees, including the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives employees, cannot be turned down coverage for up to $100,000 within their first year of hire. If you qualify for this offer, you do not need to submit medical documentation or other complex paperwork to access your benefits. An applicant must simply be a U.S. citizen under age 70 applying within one year of first-time, non-military government hire.
