To get the Geico federal employee discount of 8%, you must be an active or retired federal government employee, GS-7 or above. Geico also offers this “Eagle Discount” to federal employees with positions that are not on the GS pay system, as long as the job is equal to GS-11 or higher. The Geico Eagle Discount is available in most states and Washington, D.C.
If you belong to a federal organization like the Association of the U.S. Army, Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association, or Young Government Leaders, you can get a membership discount instead. Geico has a long list of over 500 federal affiliates, but the exact discount varies based on the organization and your location. The membership discount is also available in most states and D.C., but you can’t combine both the Geico membership and Eagle discounts.
Geico will ask about your employment when you get a quote online or over the phone, so you’ll know right away if you’re eligible for one of these programs.
It’s also worth noting that Geico was founded in 1936 to serve federal employees. Their name is actually an acronym for Government Employees Insurance Co.—GEICO. You can count on them to take care of your insurance needs as a federal employee.
