FORT MEADE, MD. (January 15, 2020) – In keeping with its commitment to providing members with high quality insurance products at great prices, the Government Employees’ Benefit Association (GEBA) has replaced its Professional Liability Insurance (PLI) provider. Effective January 1, 2020, FEDS Protection is the new PLI provider for all GEBA members. According to Michele Rackey, GEBA’s Chief Executive Officer, “We carefully considered our members’ needs and sought out FEDS Protection due to their reputation in the federal community. Our expectations for GEBA members were confidently met after our analysis of the policy, service feedback, claims administration, and legal representation.” Rackey went on to say, “the decision was solidified after Tony Vergnetti, President of FEDS Protection, and his staff demonstrated their unique understanding of the professional exposures of our members and what it takes to meet their needs.”
GEBA, a nonprofit voluntary benefits association, offers a suite of individual and group products designed and customized to fit the needs of federal employees, retirees, and their families. Under Rackey’s leadership, GEBA expanded its insurance product offerings and wealth management solutions. GEBA consistently shops the market for the best insurance options from the top providers in the industry to meet the goals and budgets of federal employees and retirees. In addition to Professional Liability Insurance, GEBA also offers Group Term Life, Individual Life, Dental, Group Long Term Disability, Vision, and Auto and Home insurance.
The mission of FEDS Protection, built by an attorney who worked for a federal agency, is consistent with GEBA’s in its intense desire to educate and help today’s federal employees. According to Tony Vergnetti, President and Founder of FEDS Protection, “GEBA’s commitment to its members, as the exposures of federal employees evolve, underscores our shared desire to fiercely protect federal employees. The life of a civil servant can be turned upside down in an instant if professional liability insurance is not part of an overall personal and familial protective strategy. GEBA understands the unrelenting criticisms of programs, policies, and procedures and how scrutiny and allegations, arising out of federal scope of employment, result in the need for the average hard-working federal employee to have experienced and tenacious legal representation at a price they can afford. We are truly honored to be chosen as the professional liability insurance provider by GEBA and look forward to a long, committed relationship to protect its members government wide.”
