If you experienced a qualifying life event (QLE), you may be able to enroll in FEDVIP outside of open season. The QLEs for FEDVIP may be different from QLEs for other federal benefits programs; each program has its own rules. Examples of FEDVIP QLEs include:
- You got married.
- You lost your other dental or vision coverage.
- Your military pay or Federal annuity or compensation was restored.
For a list of all of the FEDVIP QLEs, visit the Coverage section of this site.
To enroll, you must first check your eligibility and create a My BENEFEDS account. Then, select "Enroll" in dental or vision coverage from your account dashboard. We'll ask you a few questions to determine what QLE you experienced and if it allows you to enroll outside of open season.
