Retired Military + Federal Employee? NEVER cancel FEHB!

Tommy Blackburn, CFP®, CPA, PFS, of Mason & Associates discusses the unique opportunity available to our retired Military that go on to have a civilian career working for the Federal Government.

ℹ️ About the Episode:

• Tricare coverage satisfies the "5-year rule" to continue FEHB coverage.

• For this reason, NEVER cancel FEHB.

• FEHB should be suspended via Form RI 79-9 rather than cancelled.

• If coverage is suspended it can always be re-applied. The same is not true with coverage that is cancelled.

• Always work with an advisor that knows YOUR benefits.
