Q. If I worked as a federal employee for 10 years and left at 40 years of age, would I be able to apply for a MRA+10 annuity at 62 and keep access to my Federal Employees Health Benefits? This would assume that during those 10 years, I was enrolled in FEHB.

A. While you would be able to apply for a deferred annuity at age 62, you wouldn’t be able to re-enroll in the FEHB program. No one who applies for a deferred annuity can do that.
