Suspend FEHB?


Q. I have had Federal Employees Health Benefits for several years and will retire soon and collect immediate annuity. If I were to find a part-time job that offered insurance after I retire from federal service, could I suspend my FEHB for a few years and re-enroll after I fully retired in a few years?

A. No, you couldn’t do that.
