Affordable Life Insurance Plans for CBP Employees

Dedicated retirement and financial benefits, and life insurance plans for U.S. Customs and Border Patrol personnel.

Financial & Retirement Planning and Life Insurance for CBP Employees

Every day, members of U.S. Customs and Border Patrol do vital work on the U.S. border and elsewhere. Now, CBP employees can work with greater confidence than ever. How? Through life insurance for Customs and Border Patrol employees that genuinely meets their unique needs.

U.S. federal government civilians working throughout the CBP structure have a unique chance to apply for Group Term Life Insurance and other resources through WAEPA – World Assurance for Employees of Public Agencies.

WAEPA is the FEGLI alternative that makes sense for federal civilians.

Most prospective members will discover that, by choosing WAEPA, they’ll be able to enjoy comparable benefits with lower monthly premiums at most age categories than FEGLI.

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 – and employees of the CBP are eligible to enjoy all that we have to offer.


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 CBP Employees

Guaranteed Issue Life Insurance means qualifying federal employees, including CBP 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.

Financial Wellness Planning for a Brighter Financial Future

Our financial wellness planning resources are second to none. We will help you make the most of all the many incredible opportunities for savings and retirement that the federal service affords you. We work directly with the leading financial planners in the industry, Ernst & Young. These experts will give you the insight you need to make informed financial decisions at every step.

An Ever-Expanding Supply of Great Resources for Your Career

WAEPA strives to exceed our members’ expectations in every way. Our benefits and resources are growing every year. From the comfort of your own home, you can access cutting-edge financial planning webinars we’ve developed alongside the National Institute for Transition Planning, Inc. – one of the top names in pre-retirement strategy for the federal workplace.
