Insurance coverage


Q: Under CSRS, if you retire in the middle of the month, your pension does not begin until the first of the next month. Are there any impacts to your health/life insurance coverage during those days between your retirement effective date and the beginning of your pension (i.e., if you retire on Sept. 15, are you covered insurance-wise from Sept. 16 until Oct. 1)?

A: Yes.
