Frequently Asked Questions Insurance

Can I continue my FEDVIP dental and/or vision coverage into retirement?

Yes.  Your FEDVIP coverage automatically continues when you retire if you are enrolled as an employee.  There is no 5-year requirement for continuing FEDVIP into retirement. To be eligible for FEDVIP as a retiree, you must have retired with an immediate annuity (note: a FERS Minimum Retirement Age plus 10 annuity, postponed, counts as an immediate annuity).  You can enroll in a FEDVIP dental plan and/or a FEDVIP vision plan for the first time as a retiree, even if you were never enrolled as an employee, as long as you have an immediate annuity.

Those in receipt of a deferred annuity are not eligible to enroll in FEDVIP. Please review Section 1 - Eligibility (Federal Annuitants) of any Dental or Vision plan brochure.
