Your Safety Net For Your Career and Your Savings
As a Federal Employee you may face a unique risk if allegations, claims and/or lawsuits are made against you arising from alleged acts, errors, or omissions made in the scope of your employment.
It doesn't matter how well you do your job as assigned.
The situation could impact your career or even threaten your hard-earned savings.
Who Stands By Your Side During A Lawsuit?
The Department of Justice (DOJ) is solely responsible for determining whether they'll represent Feds during civil lawsuits. However, the government's priorities might not be the same as yours.
GEBA's affordable Professional Liability Program provides:
Which Federal Employees Can Sign Up?
The GEBA program is available to Feds working at least 17.5 hours a week in any branch or agency of the civilian federal government. (Contractors, federal retirees and members of the military are not eligible.)
Please strongly consider obtaining this protection if your duties include:
- Implementing public policy decisions
- Management of employees
- Awarding contracts or administering federal funds
Worried that setting up your own professional liability protection simply won't fit in your budget? GEBA's Professional Liability Program helps you keep costs down with an affordable group rate.
Full coverage up to $1 million for any civil liability and up to $200,000 for administrative defense is yours for only $290 a year. Your first year premium is prorated based on your effective date.
Compare that to the cost of hiring your own attorney. GEBA coverage stands out for its exceptional value.
IMPORTANT: Federal law requires your agency to reimburse 50% (up to $150 a year) for professional liability coverage if you're a manager, supervisor or law enforcement officer.
