GEBA is a nonprofit member-governed employee benefit association dedicated to serving the federal employees of the U.S. Intelligence Community, Department of Defense, Department of State, FBI, U.S. Agency for International Development, and military, contractors (assigned to NSA-W), and Sponsored Family Members.  

GEBA offers outstanding insurance and investment products from financially strong and highly reputable companies.  Our licensed Consultants integrate their expertise in insurance and investment products with their knowledge of federal benefit programs to provide personalized recommendations for you and your family.   

Serving the Intelligence Community for 60 Years

GEBA was started in 1957 by NSA employees to offer group insurance plan access to NSA employees.  Since then, the GEBA product line has expanded to provide a wide spectrum of insurance and investment options.  We negotiate on behalf of our members to find the best insurance plans from financially strong insurance companies, who will be there when our members and their families need them.  On the investment side, we offer the most sought-after investment products, plus sometimes find options that are not generally available in the open market.  

GEBA is distinguished by:

  • our commitment to our members,
  • our focus on service,
  • easy access to relevant information,
  • and unbiased advice from knowledgeable Consultants.  

We continually strive to meet the dynamic needs of our members like you, to provide customized solutions to help you secure your financial future.
