Retirement and insurance


Q. As a FERS civil servant, if I am covered under Tricare for the last five years before retirement, and I enroll in FEHB just before retiring, can I maintain FEHB in retirement and can my active-duty spouse be covered under FEHB if we choose to do so after I’ve retired?

A. Yes.
