FEHBP Premium Conversion H.R.2125/S.1022


Federal employees have enjoyed the benefit of paying their FEHBP premiums
from pre-tax dollars since October 2000.  Annuitants were excluded from 
this benefit due to the lack of clear authority to do the same.

Bills have been introduced in the 107th Congress that would allow
federal retirees to pay their FEHBP premiums with pre-tax dollars. 
This would offset some of the rising cost of our health care. 


Senator John Warner has introduced S.1022 that would do the same for 
retired federal employees. This bill would provide that OPM's premium 
deductions from our annuity would be before federal income taxes are
paid, effectively reducing the cost to the annuitant.

Representative Tom Davis has introduced H.R.2125  This bill would also
provide that OPM's premium deductions from our annuity would be before
federal income taxes are paid, effectively reducing the cost to the 
annuitant.

We need additional co-sponsors for these bills.
