When your child reaches age 26, he or she is no longer eligible to be covered under your health benefits enrollment.  If your child turning age 26 means that you have no other eligible family members, or you have only one remaining eligible family member, you must submit a Health Benefits Election Form, SF 2809, to your Benefits Contact to change your enrollment to “Self Only” or “Self Plus One” coverage.  The change is not automatic.

When your child reaches age 22 (or marries before age 22) he or she is no longer eligible to be covered under your life insurance family enrollment. This is true even if your child is still in school.  If your child is no longer eligible for coverage and was your only covered family member, you must submit an election form to your Benefits Contact to cancel the Option C-Family coverage.  The change is not automatic.

If you are entitled to Medicare Part A (Hospital Insurance) at age 65, you should enroll, even if you are still working. This may help cover some of the costs that your Federal Employees Health Benefits (FEHB) plan may not cover, such as deductibles, coinsurance, and charges that exceed the plan's allowable charges.   There is no premium for Part A.  The Medicare taxes you pay while working entitles you to Part A.
