Affordable Life Insurance Plans for FAA Employees

Dedicated retirement and financial benefits, and life insurance plans for Federal Aviation Administration personnel.

Financial & Retirement Planning and Life Insurance for FAA Employees

Millions of people throughout the United States rely on the Federal Aviation Administration to help ensure they reach their destination safely. Now, FAA employees can join WAEPA – Worldwide Assurance for Employees of Public Agencies.

WAEPA is a nonprofit organization exclusively dedicated to supporting members of the federal civilian service. Since World War II, we've been providing federal civilians with guaranteed issue Group Term Life Insurance and a wide range of other outstanding benefits. FAA employees are welcome.

If you are interested in FEGLI, you'll find that WAEPA is the preferred FEGLI alternative. Members across most age categories will discover their potential for superior insurance premiums and coverage with us.

Life Insurance New FAA Employees Can Count On

Our life insurance options, underwritten by New York Life Insurance Company, are simple and effective. Compared to FEGLI, WAEPA provides lower costs and premiums for members across several age groups.

Group Term Life Insurance

Group 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

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