Membership Benefits

FEDS - Professional Liability Insurance

FEDS now offers a discounted liability insurance to all NWROA members.

These liability insurance plans provide legal defense services to you if you are accused of job-related wrongdoing and also offer indemnification (usually up to one million dollars) if you are sued and a judgment of money damages is issued against you.

Let's clear up one major misconception - you as a federal employee can be sued. Federal employees in all job types can be sued personally by private persons for alleged violations of their constitutional and common law rights. You should know that DOJ has frequently taken the position that it is NOT in the scope of your employment or the interest of the U.S. to defend an employee. Even if the allegation arose during the scope of your employment, DOJ still has the discretionary decision to defend you.
