Open Season for dental, vision benefits extended

Federal employees have a few extra hours to enroll, change or cancel their dental and vision benefits, the Office of Personnel Management announced on its website.

Due to technical difficulties on the enrollment website, BENEFEDS.com, reported on Monday, Dec. 12, OPM has extended the deadline until midnight, Wednesday, Dec. 14.

Open Season was set to end midnight, Dec. 12 without the technical issues. Feds can call the call center (1-877-888-3337) for additional assistance.

The extension only applies to the Federal Employees Dental and Vision Insurance Program.
