Financial & Retirement Planning and Life Insurance for ED Employees
Every day, members of the Department of Education do vital work helping students develop into tomorrow's leaders. Now, federal civilian employees of the Department of Education can benefit from a reliable, robust, and convenient Group Term Life Insurance option.
No matter if you're an educator, a researcher, an administrator, or hold any other civilian role, WAEPA is ready to welcome you. Since World War II, WAEPA has been supporting members of the federal civilian service.
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 Department of Education 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 Employees
Guaranteed Issue Life Insurance means qualifying federal employees, including Department of Education 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 to Support Your Savings and Life Goals
Our custom Financial Wellness Planning offering is provided through an alliance with Ernst & Young. E&Y is one of the world's top brands in sound financial planning. Their coaches will work with you to ensure you can leverage all the opportunities available to you in the federal workplace.
