You should not need to take any action with your Federal Employees Dental and Vision Insurance Program (FEDVIP) enrollment(s) when you retire. Most payroll offices inform BENEFEDS when an employee retires. You will receive a letter informing you we have been notified of your retirement and that your FEDVIP plan premiums will be deducted from your annuity once adjudication has been finalized. If you do not receive this letter soon after your last pay period before retirement, please contact BENEFEDS Customer Service.
During adjudication, you may receive direct bills for your premium. Please note that FEDVIP premiums cannot be withheld from your interim retirement annuity. You need to pay premiums directly during this time in order to keep your coverage active. If this is the case, you will be sent a letter informing you about the direct bill process.
