Group Term Life Insurance

As your family grows, GEBA has the coverage to help provide for your family’s future.

GEBA’s Group Term Life Insurance Plan, with coverage issued by New York Life Insurance Company, was designed to help your family realize their hopes and dreams for the future in the event of an unexpected death. Your Term Life Insurance Plan will help provide money for the mortgage, for the college education you want for your children or to help ensure your partner can retire in comfort, even when you’re not there.


Did you know that about half of Americans with insurance are underinsured? People with only group term life insurance have an average coverage gap of $225,000.* FEGLI alone may not be enough. GEBA offers Group Term Life Coverage you can keep, even if you leave the federal workforce or retire. Interested in how they stack up? See the difference with our GEBA vs. FEGLI comparison calculator.

*Please note that receipt of Accelerated Death Benefits may affect your eligibility for public assistance programs and may be taxable. Prior to applying to receive such benefits, you should consult with the appropriate social services agency and seek the advice of a qualified tax advisor.

The “Accelerated Death Benefit” option is available to help terminally ill insureds during a difficult, and often financially challenging time. Under this provision you may request one advance payment equal to 75%, but not more than $250,000, of a qualified terminally ill person’s in force life insurance to be paid while that person is still alive. 

The request must be made at least 12 months prior to the insured person’s scheduled coverage termination age and the amount of insurance payable after the insured’s death will be reduced by this payment. (Premium contributions will not be reduced.) If a scheduled reduction in coverage will occur within one year of the date the Accelerated Death Benefit will be paid, the benefit payable will be 75% of the reduced coverage amount. 

For additional details and limitations, please see the Certificate of Insurance

**Sponsored Family Members are not eligible for the Group Term Life Insurance Plan but can request an appointment with a GEBA Wealth Management financial advisor to discuss Individual Life Insurance.
