Postal Service employees can participate in an online virtual benefits fair throughout this year’s open season, which runs from Nov. 8-Dec. 13.
USPS is offering a nationwide Virtual Benefits Fair with participating Federal Employees Health Benefits (FEHB) Program carriers. The fair provides an opportunity to visit health care provider booths, attend webinars and download health plan materials on your personal computer or mobile device.
In addition to the FEHB health plan carriers, representatives from the USPS Health Benefits Plan, Federal Employees Dental and Vision Insurance Program, Federal Long Term Care Insurance Program, flexible spending accounts, Medicare, Social Security Administration, Thrift Savings Plan, the USPS Employee Assistance Program and various education partners, such as schools and universities, will attend.
Employees can participate in live event days to speak with experts on four dates:
• Monday, Nov. 15, from 1-9 p.m. EST
• Thursday, Nov. 18, from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. EST
• Tuesday, Nov. 30, from 1-9 p.m. EST
• Friday, Dec. 3, from 11 a.m.-7 p.m. EST
Participation is voluntary. Nonexempt employees may only participate off the clock or during authorized breaks.
Open season is also a good time to review and update your PostalEASE login information, as well as your beneficiary forms.
