WAEPA Announces a 2017 Premium Refund

The WAEPA Board of Directors is pleased to announce another premium refund to WAEPA members! Your check will be mailed the week of September 25, 2017.

Premium refunds are not guaranteed. Refunds are based primarily on the claims ratio for each fiscal year and despite constant fluctuations in the claims ratio, WAEPA has given a refund twenty-one of the past twenty-two years!

WAEPA was founded in 1943 to promote the health, welfare, and financial well-being of civilian federal employees and their families. Continued growth is an important factor in the annual refund of premium to all members. We encourage you to mention the benefits of WAEPA to your co-workers.

Important facts surrounding your 2017 premium refund:
