Most employees of the federal government and their families are eligible for life insurance coverage through the Federal Employees Group Life Insurance Program (known as FEGLI). It is administered by the federal Office of Personnel Management (OPM), which has a contract with Metropolitan Life Insurance Company to provide the insurance. MetLife has a specific unit that handles FEGLI claims, known as the Office of Federal Employees Group Life Insurance (OFEGLI). Specific rules have been put in place to determine how FEGLI claims are paid. In some cases, these rules differ from how life insurance policies would be interpreted under state law. The experienced life insurance attorneys at Trief & Olk are knowledgeable in the specific law surrounding FEGLI policies and can assist you if your FEGLI claim has been denied.
