Deadline extended

The Benefeds site advises federal employees they have extra time to make changes to their FEDVIP health and dental coverage.

The U.S. Office of Personnel Management is giving federal employees more time to enroll, cancel or change their Federal Employees Dental and Vision Insurance Program (FEDVIP) coverage.

The deadline, originally slated for earlier this week, has been extended to Wednesday, Dec. 14, at 11:59 p.m. EST.

The FEDVIP site is undergoing repairs to fix technical issues. To enroll or make changes, contact the Benefeds call center, which is open through Dec. 14.

The number is 877-888-3337.

This extension is only for FEDVIP. Open season for the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program and the flexible spending accounts program has not been extended.
