If I sign a Waiver of Immediate Reinstatement of FEHB to postpone automatic reinstatement of my FEHB, will my survivors be able to continue FEHB coverage if I die?

If you die, the Waiver of Immediate Reinstatement of FEHB automatically terminates. If you postponed reinstatement of a Self Plus One enrollment or a Self and Family enrollment, and your survivors are eligible for a survivor annuity, their FEHB coverage will begin the day after your death. Note that for a Self Plus One enrollment only the eligible family member you has listed as the designated covered family member at the time you signed the waiver may be eligible for the FEHB coverage as a survivor annuitant.
