It’s open season time again, and I want to make sure you have all of the answers you need to your questions about your Federal benefits to help you make these important decisions.  

At 11 a.m. on Monday, November 24, 2014, OPM is hosting a special Google Hangouts question and answer session. Four of OPM’s program experts will be available to answer your questions on health care, vision, dental, and flexible spending account benefits.

During open season, FEHB participants need to decide whether to keep their current health plans or change them. You should review the FEDVIP options and consider whether to enroll in FSAFEDS for the following year. If you are eligible to enroll in the FEHB program but do not currently participate, you can sign up for the first time. 

To prepare for the Google Hangout and to help get familiar with the choices available to you, I suggest you check out the Circle ‘Round Your Benefits, Plan Comparison, and Plan Smart Choice tools. We want to help you make the best choice for you and your family.

The questions and answer session should address any questions you have about the benefits you have available to you and also any features in the plans. Changes for the coming year include a lower minimum deposit requirement for the FSAFEDS Program. You can also roll over up to $500 to the following year.

Our experts can clarify terms and help you compare plan features. It’s the perfect way to make sure you have the best information at your fingertips to make a decision by the December 8 deadline.

Ask your question on Twitter or the Google Hangout page using hashtag #FedBenefits. Start asking them now and tune in to see if your question is answered. And be sure to join us on Monday.
