Q. I have over 25 years of service as a full-time employee under FERS. I plan to switch to working part time for the next year or two before I retire. I know that I’ll pay a higher Federal Employees Health Benefits premium while in part-time status because the government pays proportionally less. When I retire, will I have to continue paying the higher premium or will the government share revert to what it was when I was in full-time status?
A. It will revert to the premiums you were paying as a full-time employee.
