FEHB pre-tax savings


Q. I meet the five-year requirement for maintaining FEHB coverage once I retire. However, after I retire, can I switch the policy to my wife, also a fed, as the primary policyholder to get the pre-tax benefit? Will that affect my future eligibility?

A. Yes, you can. And no, it won’t affect your future eligibility.
