  1. At retirement I was eligible for CSRS regular retirement. I elected the disability retirement. I am 6 years post CSRS disability retirement.

    I will be 60 years old February 2018.

    I have an outside long term care policy. It has a waiting period of 90 days paid care vs the OPM offered one of 30 days paid care (waiting period to receive benefits)

    1. Can I add the OPM long term care plan after retirement?
    2. If added, is this done during open season each year or at anytime during the year?
    3. Are there penalties associated with adding it after retirement?

  2. Don’t cancel FEHB! You can suspend it instead, just in case a situation comes up that you might need it again. I just went to a retirement seminar, suspending it is the way to go.
