Survivor Benefits

If the employee, annuitant or compensationer was enrolled in the Federal Employees' Group Life Insurance (FEGLI) Program, life Insurance benefits may be payable. If the deceased was a Federal employee, you must contact the employing agency where he or she last worked. If the deceased was receiving compensation from the U.S. Department of Labor for an on-the-job injury or was a Federal retiree, you must contact the OPM Retirement Office by phone toll free 1 (888) 767-6738 or click here: Report the Death of Someone who receives Benefits from OPM.

The appropriate office will supply the claim form needed to apply for FEGLI benefits and will complete the required paperwork to certify the life insurance. You can also download the forms from the FEGLI website at www.opm.gov/insure/life.

OPM pays annuities and provides retirement and benefit services to over 2.3 million Federal retirees and their families.
