To promote the Self Plus One enrollment period, USPS will mail postcards with this image to employees’ homes during the week of Jan. 25.

Postal Service employees can choose Self Plus One health coverage during a special enrollment period from Feb. 1-29.

Self Plus One is a Federal Employee Health Benefits enrollment type, similar to Self and Family and Self Only.

Self Plus One covers you and one eligible dependent such as a spouse, a son or daughter younger than age 26 or a son or daughter who is incapable of self-support.

In many cases, Self Plus One costs less than Self and Family.

The special enrollment is available only to employees enrolled in Self and Family plans.

If you’re enrolled in a Self Only plan, you must wait until open season or until you experience a qualifying life event” — such as a marriage, divorce or change in employment status — to switch to Self Plus One.

To change your enrollment type, go to PostalEASE or call 877-477-3273 (select option 1). Some facilities also offer self-service kiosks that allow you to change your coverage.

For assistance, call the HR Shared Service Center at 877-477-3273 (select option 5). The TTY number is 866-260-7507.

The special enrollment ends at 11:59 p.m. EST Feb. 29. More information is available on the Self Plus One LiteBlue page.
