Employees Transferring from Outside of NGB
As a transfer Federal employee, most Federal benefits will transfer with you automatically; for these benefits you do not need to enroll again. 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 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.

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.
