Falls Church, VA., November 30, 2018: M. Shane Canfield, CEO of Worldwide Assurance for Employees of Public Agencies (WAEPA) was featured alongside Bill Valdez, President of Senior Executives Association (SEA) on the November 30 episode of FEDtalk.


FEDtalk is a live radio talk show produced by Shaw Bransford & Roth P.C., a federal employment law firm. The episode, titled ‘Two Opportunities For You’ was centered around WAEPA’s offerings and the upcoming Presidential Rank Awards hosted by SEA.


“The benefit from our Chronic Illness Rider can be used for any expense you choose,” Canfield said on the show. “It’s paid directly to you to use as you see fit.”


Civilian Federal Employees can apply to add WAEPA’s Chronic Illness Rider to their existing Group Term Life Insurance* policies, or select to add it when they apply for the first time. Those looking to learn more information about the Presidential Rank Awards may do so by visiting the event page.
