Does WAEPA have an Open Season like FEGLI?

WAEPA and New York Life Insurance Company are not affiliated with or endorsed by the federal government, so it does not provide an Open Season to all federal employees. Instead, WAEPA makes certain levels of life insurance coverage available to new civilian federal government employees on a guaranteed issue basis, as well as provides members the ability to apply for additional coverage at any time below age 65 (subject to approval by New York Life Insurance Company).
