Affordable Life Insurance Plans for VA Employees

Dedicated retirement and financial benefits, and life insurance plans for Department of Veterans Affairs personnel.

Financial & Retirement Planning and Life Insurance for VA Employees

The Department of Veteran Affairs serves a growing community of America’s heroes. Now, WAEPA is proud to give back to those who help our veterans. Group Term Life Insurance for Department of Veteran Affairs employees is finally available on your terms.

WAEPA – World Assurance for Employees of Public Agencies – has been providing excellence in life insurance and related services since World War II. If you are considering joining us, you are likely to find you’ll get better premiums than would be available to you from 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 Department of Veteran Affairs employees 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. Compared to FEGLI, WAEPA provides lower costs and premiums for members across several age groups.

Guaranteed Issue Life Insurance for New Employees

Guaranteed Issue Life Insurance means qualifying federal employees, including Department of Veteran Affairs 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 Makes it Easier to See Your Financial Future

With a dizzying array of different options to choose from, members of the federal service have often been challenged to make the right choices when it comes to savings, retirement, and more. WAEPA works side by side with financial planning pros at Ernst & Young so you’ll get sound, personalized financial wellness planning. It’s never been easier to craft a financial strategy.
