Request For Insurance Federal Employees' Group Life Insurance (FEGLI) Program Instructions for Employees When should I complete this form? You should complete this form if: y y you are in a position that makes you eligible for FEGLI coverage (ask your human resources office if you don't know), AND at least one year has passed since the effective date of your most recent waiver of Basic, Option A and/or Option B life insurance, AND either: you are not enrolled in the FEGLI Program, but would like to be, OR you are enrolled in the FEGLI Program, but you have less than the maximum life insurance available and you want more life insurance. What is a waiver of life insurance coverage? A waiver means you: y did not elect life insurance coverage when it was available to you, OR y cancelled coverage you previously had, OR y elected less than the maximum coverage. Ask your human resources office if you don't know the effective date of your last waiver, if any. What coverage can I get by completing this form? You can get Basic, Option A, and Option B, if the Office of Federal Employees' Group Life Insurance (OFEGLI) approves your physical. You cannot get Option C by completing this form. How do I complete this form? y Ask your human resources office to complete Part A. y You must complete Part C. Answer all of the questions, or mark N/A (for not applicable). Do not leave an answer blank. y Bring this form to your physician or other healthcare provider. y Sign in Part C, in the presence of your physician or other healthcare provider. y Ask him/her to complete Part D. y Ask him/her to mail the completed form directly to OFEGLI. y OFEGLI must receive the form within 60 days of the date of the physical. Do I have to pay for this physical? Yes, you must pay any fee for the physical. Your agency or OFEGLI cannot pay for it. Can I use results of a physical I had last year for another reason? No. OFEGLI cannot accept a previous physical. Your physician or other healthcare provider must perform the physical for the purposes of this request for life insurance. OFEGLI must receive this form within 60 days of the date of the physical. What is Basic insurance? It is life insurance based on your annual salary, rounded up to the nearest thousand dollars (if it is not already an even thousand), plus $2,000. It includes accidental death and dismemberment coverage (payment of more life insurance if you die in an accident or lose a limb or eyesight.) Basic also includes an Extra Benefit if you are under age 45 when you die. The amount of Basic payable upon your death will be double the regular amount if you are age 35 or under when you die. Starting at age 36, the Extra Benefit reduces by 10 percent per year, until at age 45 there is no Extra Benefit. What is Option A? It is life insurance equal to $10,000. It is also called Standard Optional insurance. Option A also includes accidental death and dismemberment coverage. What is Option B? It is life insurance equal to 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 times your annual salary (after rounding your salary up to the nearest thousand dollars, if it is not already an even thousand). It is also called Additional Optional insurance. What is Option C? It is life insurance for your family, available in 1 to 5 multiples. Each multiple equals $5,000 for your spouse and $2,500 for each eligible dependent child. It is also called Family Optional insurance. You cannot elect Option C by completing this form. You can only elect Option C during an open enrollment period or if you have a life event (marriage, divorce, death of spouse, or adding an eligible child to your family) and already have Basic. When is coverage effective? Basic will be effective on the first day you are in a pay and duty status on or after OFEGLI's approval date. Option A and/or Option B will be effective on the first day you are in a pay and duty status on or after OFEGLI's approval date and on or after the date your agency receives your SF 2817, Life Insurance Election. However, if you are not in a pay and duty status within 31 days after the approval date you will not have Basic insurance (unless you already had it when you filled out this form), and you cannot elect Option A or Option B. If you do not submit an SF 2817 within those 31 days, you cannot elect Option A or Option B. What is pay and duty status? This means you are on duty, receiving pay. You are not on annual leave, sick leave, administrative leave or otherwise absent from duty. SF 2822 Instructions (page 1 of 2) Revised May 2009 American LegalNet, Inc. www.FormsWorkFlow.com Instructions for Employees (continued) How will I know if OFEGLI approves my physical? Your human resources office will tell you. OFEGLI contacts your human resources office as soon as it approves or denies your request. You should contact your human resources office if it is more than 2 weeks after the date your physician or other healthcare provider performed the physical and you do not yet know whether OFEGLI approved your physical. My agency told me that OFEGLI approved my request. What do I do? If you just want Basic insurance, you do not have to do anything. You will automatically have it on the first day you are in a pay and duty status on or after the date of OFEGLI's approval (as long as you are in a pay and duty status within 31 days of OFEGLI's approval.) If you want Option A and/or Option B, you must complete SF 2817, Life Insurance Election. Your human resources office must receive your form within 31 days after OFEGLI's approval. Sign for Basic and for Option A and/or Option B. Be sure to mark the number of Option B multiples you want to have. Approval of your physical allows you to elect up to a total of 5 multiples of Option B. Each SF 2817 you complete replaces the previous form. You must sign for all coverage you currently have and wish to keep, AND you must sign for all new coverage you wish to elect. If you have coverage now and do not sign for that coverage, you have cancelled that coverage. My agency told me that OFEGLI denied my request. Can I appeal? OFEGLI's decision is final. There are no formal appeal procedures. You or your physician or other healthcare provider may call OFEGLI at 1-800-633-4542 and ask why it denied your request for insurance. Depending on the reason for the denial, you may be able to submit additional medical evidence. OFEGLI may have denied your request because you didn't wait until at least one year after the date of your last waiver of insurance. If so, you can wait until that year has passed, complete another SF 2822, and have another physical. OFEGLI can discuss your options. Where can I get more information about the FEGLI program? You can find more information on the FEGLI website at www.opm.gov/insure/life. Read the FEGLI Booklet (FE 76-21 or FE 76-20 for Postal employees) and/or the FEGLI Handbook (RI 76-26) (available in electronic format only).
