You are eligible if you're currently a non-military government or Postal Service employee, you are less than 65 years old and you are a U.S. citizen. You're also eligible if you are a former non-military federal employee, under age 65, currently receiving a government retirement annuity.

WAEPA exists as a non-profit association to help federal employees get more insurance and pay less. This coverage is underwritten by Life Insurance Company of North America (LINA), a company rated "excellent" by A.M. Best and Moody's.
