FEGLI is an acronym for ‘Federal Employees Group Life Insurance ’. It is the largest group life insurance program for Federal and Postal employees and retirees in the U.S. It is the largest insurance scheme launched specifically for federal employees, retired people & their families. FEGLI has covered almost all employees & it gives group life term insurance.
FEGLI gives ‘Basic life Insurance’ (BIA) & with it gives 3 more optional insurance, which we can opt for if we want. 3 options are standard, additional & family. These options should be chosen, as it was not allocated automatically. The cost of BIA is divided into 3 parts. The insured person has to pay 2/3 amount & the remaining 1/3 amount is covered by the government. Here, the cost of BIA is the same for every person irrespective of age. But when you choose one of three optional insurance, that cost should be borne by the insured person.
Option A – Standard Insurance
This is standard insurance which allows employees to buy an additional $10,000 worth of coverage at their own expense if they are already covered by Basic life insurance. During this insurance, the premium rates are relatively moderate but increase with time.
Option B – Additional
Option B FEGLI Coverage is additional insurance which allows the employees to opt for an amount equal to one, two, three, four or five times of their annual basic pay, after making a round of the next $1,000.
Option C – Family
Option C coverage is basically for the family of employees. With this, you can get coverage for your spouse and eligible dependent children under a single policy but at your own expense. Similar to Option B, here also you can select up to five multiples of coverage. Each of the multiple is equal to $2,500 for each of your children and $5,000 for your spouse.

Determine the FEGLI coverage if the Basic Pay is $62,157 and Option B is selected 2 times and option C with 3 times for a spouse.
Here Basic Salary = $62,157
Round off $62,157 will give $63,000 and calculating BIA
So, BIA = $65,000
Now calculating FEGLI coverage Option A, Option B and Option C
For, Option A FEGLI coverage
Option A = BIA + $10,000
Option A = $65,000+$10,000
For, Option B FEGLI coverage
Option B = 2 × Basic Salary
Option B = 2 × $63,000
For, Option C FEGLI coverage
Option C = 3 × $5,000
Option C = 3 × $5,000
Total FEGLI coverage =BIA+Option A+Option B+Option C
Total FEGLI coverage = $65,000+$75,000+$126,000+$15,000
Hence, we get the Total FEGLI Coverage of $281,000.
