Frequently Asked Questions Insurance

When my youngest child turns age 26 next month, I won't have any family members who are eligible for FEHB coverage. Do I have to wait until Open Season to change from Self and Family to a Self Only enrollment?

If you are an annuitant or an employee who waived premium conversion, you can change from a Self and Family enrollment to a Self Only enrollment at any time. If you are an employee, your youngest child turning age 26 is a qualifying life event (QLE) permitting you to change your FEHB enrollment outside of Open Season.  With this QLE, you can change from Self and Family to Self Only coverage.  You do not need to wait until the next Open Season to make this change; however, you need to request the change to Self Only coverage within 60 days of your child turning 26.
