    Time is running out for the Federal Employees’ Group Life Insurance Program (FEGLI)’s Open Season, which ends Sept. 30. This is the first FEGLI Open Season since 2004.

    Until the end of the month, postal and federal employees who are eligible for FEGLI, may enroll for the first time or increase their coverage without taking a physical exam, answering medical questions, or waiting for a “qualifying life event,” such as marriage, divorce, death of a spouse or the addition of an eligible child to the family. Employees who are in their first 12 months of workers’ compensation are also eligible, but they must meet pay and duty status requirements before their coverage can come into effect.
