Please review your first Leave and Earnings Statement (LES) to confirm that your benefits transferred appropriately. You will also need to send the HRO staff a copy of your final LES upon receipt from your previous agency.

Refer to the Transfer Fact Sheet .pdf icon for detailed information that includes your action-items.

Benefits Forms:

As a Federal employee, you may have the opportunity to participate in a number of employee benefit and family-friendly programs. If your appointment to Federal employment confers eligibility, you may elect to participate in health, dental, and life insurance programs; retirement savings plans; flexible spending accounts; long-term care insurance; and vacation and sick leave. You have some time to turn in your benefit forms; however the sooner you turn them in the sooner they will be effective.

  • Beneficiary forms: these forms do not need to be completed if you agree with the following order of precedence – spouse, children, parents, executor of state, next of kin.
    • You have 60 days after your EOD to turn in your Health Election form (SF-2809) and Life Insurance Election (SF-2809). Your completed Health Benefits Election Form, SF-2809, must be submitted to your servicing Human Resources Office in a timely manner. If you fail to make an election within the required deadline, you are considered to have declined coverage. You will not have another opportunity to enroll until the annual open season (conducted in late Fall) or unless you experience a qualifying life event (see http://www.opm.gov/insure/health/planinfo/qle.asp) that would allow you to enroll. Please note that the SF-2809 should be completed and submitted even if you are declining coverage
    • The TSP Election form (TSP- 1) can be submitted at any time.

Effective Date of Coverage

Your election will become effective on the first day of the first pay period that begins after your employing office receives your enrollment request and you are in a pay status. This means that the earliest your health insurance can become effective is the beginning of the pay period that begins after the pay period in which you were hired.
