Q. I am a retired USAF CMS and a retired GS-13 federal employee. If I select Self Plus One, will my wife be able to continue under BCBS after I die if she is currently ineligible for a USAF annuity?
A. Yes, as long as you elected a survivor annuity for her when you retired from your civilian job. Note: You were required by law to do that unless your wife agreed in writing to receive no annuity.
