I have been enrolled in the federal BC/BS health insurance for 5 consecutive years. What do I do to ensure that I and my spouse continue on this insurance when I take this “early retirement”.

If you have had your FEHB enrollment for the five consecutive years before your retirement date, your FEHB enrollment will be automatic upon retirement. There is nothing you need to do. What has me confused is the title of the question and the statement you made about “early retirement.”

“Early retirement” in my case is that I am leaving with 14 years of Federal service at age 74. Even though it is less than 20 years I am hopeful that I will still qualify to continue the FEHB since My wife and I have been on it for over 5 consecutive years.

In order to take FEHB Into retirement one must retire on an immediate retirement and have been covered by FEHB the last 5 consecutive years prior to retiring. “Early retirement” is when someone leaves under a special authority issued to the agency. Thank you for the clarification.

Hi, I received OPM/FERS disability after 6 years of service. At age 62 do I still receive disability and qualify for FERS retirement?
Thanks,

Alonzo, at age 62, your FERS Disability retirement will convert to a regular FERS retirement. The basis for the computation will be the 6 years of service you had when your disability was approved and the number of years you have received disability retirement up to age 62. If those numbers added together equal 20 or more, the number of years will be multiplied by 1.1% x high-3 at the time disability was approved and increased by all Cost of Living Adjustments since that time. If it equals less than 20 years of service, the multiplier will be 1%.
