Q. I will be 65 in August. I retired from federal service 11 years ago and am employed as a contractor. I maintained my Federal Employees Health Benefits coverage (Care First). Will I lose this at age 65?

A. No. As long as you continue to pay the premiums, you’ll be able to carry your coverage for as long as you live.
