NALC coverage for wife


Q: I am a retired Postal worker and I carry my wife on my National Association of Letter Carriers health plan. We are thinking of having her insure herself at work and having me switch to “self – only.” When she retires, will I be able to then go back to “self and family” and include her once again?

A: Yes.
