Your FEDVIP enrollment coverage continues as a retiree. It may take a few annuity cycles for you to see premiums deducted from your annuity. You are not required to contact BENEFEDS upon separating; however, you can speed up the process by contacting BENEFEDS directly to inform them of your separation. You may also reach them by calling 1-877-888-3337, Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., ET.
When you retire, you are eligible to continue your life insurance if you meet the following requirements:
There are no waivers of the requirements to carry life insurance into retirement and there are no exceptions to the "no waiver" rule - it does not matter whether you retire on disability, accept a voluntary incentive payment, etc. If you are not eligible to continue your coverage into retirement, you may convert to a private non-group policy.
Your participation in the FSA program ends at separation. Any health care expense incurred after your participation ends is not eligible for reimbursement. You can continue to use the remaining balance of your dependent care FSA to pay for eligible dependent care expenses until the end of the Benefit Period or until your account balance is depleted, whichever comes first. For more information, visit the FSAFEDS website or call 1-877-372-3337, Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., ET.

The Voluntary Contribution Program (VCP) allows you to invest after-tax dollars in the Civil Service Trust Fund above the required retirement contributions.
Employees who are currently covered by CSRS or CSRS-Offset or separated employees whose application for retirement under CSRS or CSRS-Offset is currently being processed by the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) can apply to make voluntary contributions to the CSRS retirement fund.
Interest is earned at the rate of three percent annually through December 31, 1984. Beginning January 1, 1985, voluntary contributions earn interest at a variable rate determined each calendar year by the Department of the Treasury. This interest is not subject to Federal income tax until it is paid to you.
You must pay all deposits or redeposit for temporary service or refunded service prior to making voluntary contributions.
Payments to the VCP must be made in multiples of $25. The amount cannot exceed 10 percent of total base pay received during all of your federal service. Once your application is accepted, you will be assigned an account number and OPM will provide you with instructions for making payments. Do not send money with the application. Payments cannot be made by payroll deductions.
If you would like to make voluntary contributions, complete form SF-2804, Application to Make Voluntary Contributions [652 KB].
