Group Term Life Insurance for Federal Employees
Group Term Life Insurance* is a smart option to plan for your financial future. WAEPA can help protect you and your loved ones for years to come.
Understanding Group Term Life Insurance
Exclusively for Civilian Federal Employees
WAEPA offers life insurance to eligible employees under age 70 who can apply for up to $1.5 million in coverage, regardless of their salary. We’re confident that you’ll be satisfied with your coverage.
Coverage You Can Count On
That’s why we offer 30-days to decide if the policy lives up to your expectations. If you’re not completely satisfied, simply return it, without claim, for a full refund of any premium paid.
Exclusive Product Benefits
WAEPA life insurance coverage is yours to keep until age 85, even if you leave the federal government, switch jobs, or retire.
Prepare for the uncertainty of future health by adding a Chronic Illness Rider to your policy.**
Life insurance can help cover an outstanding mortgage, education costs, or a comfortable retirement for your spouse.
Maximize Your Coverage
Chronic Illness Rider
We can’t always predict the future, but we can protect it. Add a Chronic Illness Rider to your life insurance policy, and you’ll have the ability to collect up to 50% of your benefit amount (with a maximum of $500,000) if you become permanently chronically ill.**

**Chronic Illness Rider (CIR)
NOTE: The Chronic Illness Rider is not a standalone policy; it can only be added to an existing or new Group Term Life Insurance policy as a rider.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: This rider is not intended to be a federally tax-qualified long-term care insurance contract under Internal Revenue Code (IRC) Section 7702B. Therefore, the premiums payable for this rider do not qualify as long-term care insurance premiums and are not deductible from gross income for federal income tax purposes. This rider, however, is subject to the federal per diem limits set forth in IRC Section 7702B. Under this rider, New York Life will not pay claimants more than the federal per diem limits. Assuming the amount you receive in the aggregate from all applicable policies does not exceed the federal per diem limits set forth in IRC Section 7702B, the benefits provided by the Chronic Illness Rider are intended to be excludable from federal gross income under Section 101 (g) of the IRC. Receipt of an accelerated death benefit may affect eligibility for Medicaid or other government benefits or entitlements and may have income tax consequences. Accelerating benefits before applying for these programs, or while you are receiving government benefits, may affect your initial or continued eligibility. Clients can contact the appropriate social service agency (e.g., the Medicaid Unit of your local Department of Public Welfare or the Social Security Administration Office) for more information.
**Chronic illness means the permanent inability to perform 2 out of 6 activities of daily living (bathing, continence, dressing, eating, toileting and transferring); or a permanent severe cognitive impairment requiring substantial supervision.”
***CIR is not currently available in: ID, LA, MN, NY, OH, UT, WA, all U.S. Territories.
****Michigan Residents: I understand that I may use a producer/agent to assist me with the completion of this application at no cost to me.
