Still open

Pamela Carter, a Washington, DC, letter carrier, reviews her benefits options during this year’s open season.

Postal Service employees who want to change their health benefits have two more weeks to do so.

Open season, the annual period when employees can make benefits changes, ends Monday, Dec. 12.

“This is a valuable opportunity for employees to ensure they have the coverage they need,” said Chief Human Resources Officer Jeff Williamson. “We encourage everyone to review their coverage and make necessary changes before this year’s open season concludes.”

Employees can choose from a variety of health, vision and dental coverage options through the following programs and plans:

  • Federal Employees Health Benefits Program (FEHB)
  • USPS Health Benefits Plan (USPSHB) for non-career employees only
  • Federal Employees Dental and Vision Insurance Program (FEDVIP)
  • Flexible spending accounts (FSAs)
