    OPM Announces 2011 Open Season Webcasts

    Washington, DC - Beginning November 2, 2011, the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) will host a series of Webcasts for federal employees and retirees that will educate and inform on the Open Season process. The webcasts will discuss topics such as "Introduction to Open Season," "Do I have the Right Health Benefits Program?" and "The Federal Flexible Spending Account Program."

    Each webcast will begin at 1:30 p.m. EST and will require a broadband (high-speed) internet connection. If you are viewing the webcasts from an office, due to bandwidth issues, the webcast should be viewed in one central location.
