Insurance question


Q. I have had my wife and family on my Retirement Health Insurance plan the last three years. Recently, my wife has had a full-time job with benefits. If I change from family to self and she quits her full-time job, can my family go back to the retirement health plan?

A. Yes, under Code 2G of OPM’s Table of Permissible Changes in FEHB Enrollment for Annuitants and Compensationers.
