FEHB and legal guardians


Q. My dad is a retired civilian from the Air Force and has continued his health insurance for him and his spouse into retirement. My dad’s brother passed away, and he had a son who is handicapped (he is 56), and the state has awarded legal guardianship to my dad. Can my dad add him to his FEHB?

A. Probably; however, he’ll have to check with his plan to be sure.
