Q. I will retire early next year. For purposes of state Medicaid, I need to know, as a retired CSRS employee, whether or not I would receive a monthly annuity receipt in the mail even though I chose direct deposit. If so, would this receipt show the paid monthly health care premium (FEHB) and the amount taken out?
A. No, you won’t receive a monthly annuity receipt in the mail regardless of whether you use direct deposit or have the check mailed to your home. To find out what your monthly premiums are, you’ll have to go to www.opm.gov/healthcare-insurance/healthcare, click on Plan information, then click on Premiums.
