Federal Dental and Vision Insurance Program – In the event of a divorce, an enrollee may decrease FEDVIP coverage from self and family to self plus one or to self-only, or from self plus one to self-only. If not done between 31 days before to 60 days after the divorce, it must wait until the next annual benefits open season and the higher level of premiums will continue for the meantime. Former spouses are not eligible for FEDVIP coverage unless separately eligible such as by being a federal employee himself or herself; there is no spouse equity, temporary continuation of coverage or right to convert to an individual policy in FEDVIP.
Federal Long Term Care Insurance Program – A former spouse who was enrolled in the FLTCIP at the time of a divorce may keep that coverage by continuing to pay the premiums. However, a former spouse not covered at the time of a divorce would not be eligible to initially enroll afterward, unless separately eligible such as by being a federal employee himself or herself.
Flexible Spending Accounts – Divorce or legal separation is a qualifying status event allowing changes in allotments to flexible spending accounts.
Garnishment – Federal salaries and retirement benefits are subject to garnishment to provide child support, alimony or both under court orders.
