Affordable Benefits for HHS Employees
Financial & Retirement Planning and Life Insurance for HHS Employees
Are you a civilian employee of Health and Health Services under the age of 70? If you’re a United States citizen within your first full year of work with the federal government, you may qualify for Group Term Life Insurance and other benefits from WAEPA.
WAEPA – Worldwide Assurance for Employees of Public Agencies – is a nonprofit organization that was originally established in 1943. Since 1973, WAEPA has provided Group Term Life Insurance and a variety of other valuable services to all civilians within the U.S. federal government.
Whether you work within a health department, the Office of the Inspector General or any other agency within Health and Human Services, you can qualify for benefits. Doctors, educators, administrators, clerical and technical experts are all eligible.
As a WAEPA member, you’ll receive all the following benefits:
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 spouses and children.
Guaranteed Issue Life Insurance for New Employees
Guaranteed Issue Life Insurance means qualifying federal employees, including HHS 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.
