Financial & Retirement Planning and Life Insurance for USDA Employees

The Department of Agriculture helps tend to some of the nation’s most important resources. From USDA Rural Development to the U.S. Farm Service, these pioneering professionals are always finding new ways to make things better in America’s breadbasket and beyond.

When you find yourself seeking out the best Group Term Life Insurance for the Department of Agriculture employees, the answer is WAEPA.

WAEPA – Worldwide Assurance for Employees of Public Agencies – is a nonprofit organization active since World War II in protecting the well-being of federal civilian personnel.

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 USDA 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 USDA Employees

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

Personalized financial wellness planning is a keystone in your federal journey. There are so many choices to be made about savings, retirement, and more that expert perspective is essential. Our partnership with Ernst & Young allows us to provide you with truly personalized care from leading experts. You will never have to wonder about your financial future with WAEPA.
