Feds, Retirees to Pay 6.2% More in Health Insurance Premiums

Federal employees and retirees will pay 6.2% more on average for health insurance premiums next year. This unacceptably high increase will hit millions of Americans in the pocketbook, making coverage less and less affordable and will cause many to drop coverage.

“Like most other Americans, federal employees and retirees have seen their standard of living decline due to stagnant incomes and cost increases for basic goods and services,” AFGE President J. David Cox Sr. said. “This is an unacceptably high increase that will force many families to make difficult decisions about how to pay their bills.”

While employees enrolled in the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program will pay 6.2% more for their insurance premiums starting in January, the government’s share of those premiums will increase just 3.7%, according to the Office of Personnel Management.

For more information see



The Federal Government established the Federal Employees’ Group Life Insurance (FEGLI) Program on August 29, 1954. It is the largest group life insurance program in the world, covering over 4 million Federal employees and retirees, as well as many of their family members.

Most employees are eligible for FEGLI coverage. FEGLI provides group term life insurance. As such, it does not build up any cash value or paid-up value. It consists of Basic life insurance coverage and three options.

In most cases, if you are a new Federal employee, you are automatically covered by Basic life insurance and your payroll office deducts premiums from your paycheck unless you waive the coverage. In addition to the Basic, there are three forms of Optional insurance you can elect. You must have Basic insurance in order to elect any of the options. Unlike Basic, enrollment in Optional insurance is not automatic — you must take action to elect the options.

The cost of Basic insurance is shared between you and the Government. You pay 2/3 of the total cost and the Government pays 1/3. Your age does not affect the cost of Basic insurance. You pay the full cost of Optional insurance, and the cost depends on your age.

The Office of Federal Employees’ Group Life Insurance (OFEGLI), which is a private entity that has a contract with the Federal Government, processes and pays claims under the FEGLI Program.
