Frequently Asked Questions: Life

I am already enrolled in Basic and Options A and B under FEGLI. Can I elect Option C now?

Yes.  Legally married same-sex spouses and children of legal same-sex marriages are now eligible family members, so you may add coverage for them under Option C.  The Option C coverage can only be elected during an Open Season or if you have a Qualifying Life Event.  

May I decrease or cancel my FEGLI coverage?

Yes.  Enrollees may decrease or cancel their coverage at any time.  However, there are only certain instances in which you may enroll.
