GEBA is a nonprofit member-governed employee benefit association dedicated to serving the federal employees and retirees, military, contractors (assigned to NSA-W), and Sponsored Family Members.  

GEBA offers our members high quality insurance products at preferred rates not available to the general public and wealth management services that have our member's best interests in mind.  We partner with top insurance and investment companies with reputations for longevity and financial strength.  Our licensed Financial Advisors merge their investment expertise with their knowledge of federal benefits to provide invaluable financial planning assistance to our members.  

Serving the Federal Employees and Retirees for Over 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 and financial planning services.  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. Our Financial Advisors are licensed professionals, including some CFPs®, and are salaried employees. 

GEBA is distinguished by:

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

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