Postal employees and retirees can choose Self Plus One health coverage during a special enrollment period now through February 29 (11:59 EST).
The enrollment is only for employees and retirees currently in the Self and Family coverage level who want to move to Self Plus One coverage.
Self Plus One is a new Federal Employee Health Benefits enrollment type that began last year. This special enrollment period is only open to employees and retirees who didn’t make the switch during last year’s open season.
If you’re enrolled in a Self Only plan, you must wait until open season or until you experience a “qualifying life event” — such as a marriage, divorce or change in employment status — to switch to Self Plus One.
To change your enrollment type, go to PostalEASE or call 877-477-3273 (select option 1). Some facilities also offer self-service kiosks that allow you to change your coverage.
For assistance, call the HR Shared Service Center at 877-477-3273 (select option 5). The TTY number is 866-260-7507.
