We are extremely excited to offer this additional level of protection and coverage to our WAEPA members. Temporary illnesses and injuries can create a serious burden for families who depend on every paycheck. This coverage provides Civilian Feds peace of mind knowing they can still receive steady income if anything were to happen. Our goal is to continue to put Civilian Feds and their families first by providing tools to prepare them for the unexpected.2 September 2021
