If I am re-employed, can I pay FEHB and FEDVIP insurance premiums on a pre-tax basis again?
Yes. If your annuity stops, you can enroll in Federal Employees Health Benefits when you are re-employed and as an active employee, you will pay premiums with pre-tax money under the premium conversion arrangement unless you waive participation. If your annuity continues upon re-employment, your employing office will transfer your enrollment from your retirement system to your agency and you will pay premiums with pre-tax money under the premium conversion arrangement unless you waive participation.

If you had coverage under the Federal Employees Dental and Vision Insurance Program as a retiree, it will continue upon your rehiring. Contact BENEFEDS at www.benefeds.com or (877) 888-3337 to switch to paying premiums from your salary in order to capture the benefit of paying with pre-tax dollars.
