Health Benefits Open Season Extended to December 29, 2006
Because of an unexpected delay in the printing and
mailing of the 2007 Guides to Federal Employees Health
Benefits (FEHB) Plans (RI 70-2, RI 70-2IN, and RI
70-8PS), the Postal ServiceTM is accepting FEHB elections
until December 29, 2006, 5 P.M. Central Time (CT). The authority to make this change is granted to agencies by the
Office of Personnel Management (OPM).
The new date is being programmed into PostalEASE,
but until programming is completed, PostalEASE will
continue to state that FEHB Open Season closes on
December 12, 2006, 5 P.M. CT.
The effective date of FEHB Open Season elections remains the same - January 6, 2007 - even with the later
deadline. The processing deadline for the PostalEASE
Human Resources Web site also remains the same -
January 7, 2007, 11:59 P.M. CT.
Please don't wait until the last day to make your
FEHB guides are available on the OPM Web site, under
"Guides for Postal Workers," at www.opm.gov/insure/07/guides.
To assist in publicizing this FEHB Open Season, all
installations should post the FEHB Open Season notice
provided on page 37. The notice should remain posted on
facility bulletin boards through December 29, 2006.
