Q. Will the government continue to pay a portion of health care premiums after I retire (as a FERS participant)? Or am I on the hook for the entire premium at that time? I anticipate retiring at age 67 with 36 years of service.
A. Your premiums will stay the same. There’s no difference in employee and retiree premiums unless you are a Postal Service employee. When they retire, their premiums go up to what everyone else pays.
