Frequently Asked Questions Insurance

Do retirees pay higher dental and vision premiums than employees?

No, FEDVIP benefits and premiums do not change because you retire. Since many employees are paid biweekly and use pre-tax premiums, their retirement premiums will appear higher because these premiums are being withheld monthly, not biweekly, and because these premiums are paid post-tax.  Pre-tax premiums are not available to annuitants, survivor annuitants or compensationers.

Please visit dental premiums or vision premiums for more information.
