If I sign a waiver to postpone automatic reinstatement of my FEHB because of transitional TRICARE, how will this affect my eligibility to continue my enrollment into retirement?

While you may count the time you are covered under transitional TRICARE toward meeting the 5 year/initial opportunity requirement to continue your FEHB into retirement, you must be covered under FEHB on the day you retire. If you plan to retire during your transitional TRICARE period, you must reinstate your FEHB before your retirement date. Your Human Resources Office can assist you.
