For those of you who may come back to the old thread @ https://www.fatwallet.com/forums/finance/915392 , I wanted to let you know that as of September 2016, that protection IS still valid. PenFed has no info on it on their website anymore, but their customer service team was able to get me in touch with Visa's Card Benefit Service team and they are the ones providing this coverage.
If you use the website, you have to register by proving your credit card number and other details, but then the web form is pretty easy to navigate and provide the requested documentation.
I just thought others may want to know that this coverage is still in effect if you are paying your cell phone bill with your PenFed CC (you must pay the cell phone bill for the month prior to an incident with the PenFed CC).
so the items should be purchased from a penfed card only right?

Years ago when this started to go away, I remember reading that they would continue to support those who were already signed up, but not allow new sign ups. I foolishly stopped paying with them a while back when I stopped using the card as my daily spender. If it was still allowing signups, I might just start using it for my cell phone bill again.
Can you provide any details on how to get the form submitted, etc

Thanks for this. Turns out I was still paying my Cell Bill with Pen Fed. Actually its the only thing I put on it each month, and it was just for this reason. I had totally forgotten about it, and actually had cell damage last month. Just signed in/up and submitted a claim. I'll post back later on my success or not.

Does it work the same way for Citi Forward?
