Judiciary Benefits Center - To Elect Life Insurance Coverage

Federal Employee Group Life Insurance (FEGLI) Basic Coverage is term insurance with 1/3 of the cost paid for by the Federal Government. All eligible employees are automatically enrolled in the Basic Coverage from the date of entrance on duty unless coverage is waived as indicated in the general instructions.

You have up to 60 days from your first day of employment to waive basic coverage or choose further options.  If you wish to elect coverage, refer to the booklet RI 76-21 for the various options available. 

If you do not want life insurance coverage you must log into the Judiciary Benefits Center (JBC) and waive coverage.
