Did you recently convert to Fulltime Regular?
If yes, you have 60 days to make your decision and enroll in a FEHB plan.
Beginning on Wednesday, March 17, 2021, Mail Handler Benefit Plan representatives will host informational webinars to provide an overview and discuss the features of the union sponsored health plan (MHBP®). Each webinar will run about 30 minutes and will include time for live questions and answers. These webinars are intended for our new career mail handlers, nearly 5,300 of which converted to fulltime regular effective March 13, 2021.
Remember, newly converted mail handlers have 60 days from the effective date of your career appointment to enroll in a Federal Employee Health Benefit (FEHB). If you don't make an election by that time, you are considered to have declined coverage, and you must wait until the next Open Season to enroll. Qualifying Life Events may permit additional opportunities to make a change outside of Open Season.
