Taxes & Insurance

FEHB coverage as a child ends upon marriage or reaching age 22, whichever occurs first. It is the child’s responsibility to notify OPM of a marriage before age 22. If the marriage ends before age 22, the child may again be eligible for coverage. Contact OPM for information about reenrollment.

If a child receiving a monthly annuity loses coverage because the survivor who was paying for the coverage cancels or changes the family enrollment to self only, OPM will offer the opportunity to continue coverage.
