VERA and FEHB re-enrollment


Q. I took the Postal Service early retirement Jan. 31 and chose to end my Federal Employees Health Benefits coverage, as I decided to take coverage under my husband’s nonfederal policy. However, I’m having second thoughts about the switch; is it possible to regain coverage through the federal program?

A. Not unless you return to work in the government in a position that allows you to enroll in the FEHB program.
