Bill changes life insurance payments to lump sum
Wednesday - 1/12/2011, 2:41pm EST
The Federal Life Insurance Transparency Act (H.R. 48) responds to concerns that the current payments to beneficiaries are put into accounts that are not federally insured.
The current system under the Federal Employees Life Insurance Program (FEGLI) is a checking account through an insurance company, known as a Total Control Account.
Colleen Kelley, president of the National Treasury Employees Union, said in a statement that the bill "gives federal employees more accountability when making critical benefits decisions for themselves and their family members and makes the process more transparent."
