Understanding OFEGLI and Its Benefits
OFEGLI is a group life insurance program for federal employees and their families. It offers various coverage options, including Basic, Optional, and Family coverage. Some key aspects of OFEGLI benefits include:
1. Eligibility: Most full-time and part-time federal employees, as well as certain other groups, are eligible for OFEGLI coverage.
2. Coverage options: Employees can typically choose from several coverage levels, including Basic coverage (which provides a benefit equal to the employee's annual salary, rounded up to the nearest $1,000, plus $2,000), Optional coverage (which allows employees to purchase additional coverage), and Family coverage (which covers the employee's spouse and dependent children).
3. Premiums: Premiums for Basic coverage are shared between the employee and the federal government, while premiums for Optional and Family coverage are usually paid entirely by the employee.
4. Beneficiary designations: Employees can designate primary and contingent beneficiaries to receive their OFEGLI benefits in the event of their death.
