Frequently Asked Questions Insurance

I am a Member of Congress or designated congressional staff. My spouse is about to retire and will be covered under my DC SHOP plan as a family member. Can he or she continue coverage if I pass away while he or she is covered under my plan?

As long as your spouse is otherwise eligible for a survivor annuity, he or she will be eligible to enroll in an OPM-contracted FEHB plan. Please contact your benefits officer for more information.
