We've redesigned our website to make it easier for you to find the information you need to make important decisions about our benefit programs. We've overhauled the format of this site to target those instances when you typically want to make changes, based on life events or your career status.
This website can be navigated by audience group, Program type, or Life Events. By navigating through one of the audience groups, you will find a list of common questions to help guide you to the information you need. The menu bar lists all of our Programs, which takes you directly to specific information about that Program. The Life Cycle Events section has a listing of common events that may occur during or after your Federal career. You will see what actions you may need to take for each of the Programs.
The New/Prospective Employees section is designed for the types of benefit questions that a new Federal Employee or a person who is considering employment in the Federal Government may have.
The Federal Employees section addresses the kinds of questions Federal employees may have.
The Retirees or Family Members section answers questions important to Federal retirees or family members of an employee or retiree.
The Benefits Officers section will help staff members find resources for their day-to-day activities.
The site design universal features include a menu bar that easily allows you to go to the topic of your choice. You will find it on all of the pages to which the redesign applies. Any archived information will be accessible after you enter one of the program pages.
