Who is my beneficiary?
You need to check with your employing agency.
OPM does not maintain information on FEGLI designations of beneficiary for employees of other agencies. You need to check with the office that maintains your Official Personnel Folder or equivalent at your agency. If you do not know what office that is or how to contact them, please check with your supervisor.
We cannot tell you who your designated beneficiary (if any) is, so please do not email OPM's life insurance office asking this question.

You need to check with OPM's Retirement Office by email at email@example.com or by writing to: OPM Retirement Operations Center, P.O. Box 45, Boyers, PA 16017-0045. They maintain all of your FEGLI records. You will need to provide your retirement claim number (CSA) or social security number.
Please note: Beneficiary records are not maintained online. Your paper retirement file will need to be pulled to send you a copy of your current designation. This may take awhile.
Instead of waiting for a copy of a designation of beneficiary (if any), you may wish to simply submit a new form. That form will take precedence over any FEGLI designation form on file, as long as you sign it, have two witnesses sign, and complete the rest of the form properly. You can obtain a FEGLI designation form (SF 2823) at http://www.opm.gov/insure/designations/index.asp.
