Would my spouse be eligible to apply for Life Insurance by joining WAEPA?

Yes, your spouse could be covered as a Dependent under your WAEPA Certificate, restricted to no more than 50% of your coverage, with a maximum of $500,000, and rates are based on your; the Member’s age.


Your spouse may be covered as an Associate Member. Your spouse may apply to our Member maximum of $1,500,000 (dependent on age) and, in this case, the rates would be based on your spouse’s age on the Member Rates Chart.

An Associate Member is a full fledged Member with all of the same rights and privileges as a Member who gained their eligibility from federal service. Once a person becomes a WAEPA Member they can pass Associate Membership to their respective spouse, or children. You just need to join WAEPA, as a federal, civilian employee, to gain this opportunity for your family!
