As we prepare to celebrate Thanksgiving with our loved ones, I want to take a moment to thank each and every Federal employee for their hard work and dedication to serving the American people. I also want them to thank them for their continued support of the Combined Federal Campaign.


At this critical time as OPM and its government-wide partners work to strengthen the Federal Government’s cybersecurity posture, I’m excited to once again answer the call to public service. Let me tell you a little bit about myself.


On November 11, 2015 our nation will pause to honor, remember and show our gratitude to all the veterans who have served this nation with honor, dedication, and distinction. Throughout this month, as we pay tribute to those who have served and sacrificed, I hope each of us will reflect on their service and sacrifice and will reach out to our nation’s veterans to say thank you.


Federal benefits open season is here. Each year we encourage all employees and retirees to review their benefits and make sure that they have plans that work best for them and their families. From today through December 14, employees and retirees can review and update their health, dental, and vision choices. Eligible employees who are not currently enrolled can also select plans for the first time. Retirees not currently enrolled in the Federal Employees Dental and Vision Program (FEDVIP) can also select dental and vision plans for the first time during open season.


Championing diversity and inclusion in America’s Federal workforce is critical as we recruit and develop the talent we need to serve the American people. And OPM is working to encourage and help more Native Americans to join the Federal Government.
