The U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) has Government-wide responsibility and oversight for Federal benefits administration.
As a Federal employee, the benefits available to you represent a significant part of your compensation package. They may provide important insurance coverage to protect you and your family and, in some cases, offer tax advantages that reduce the burden in paying for some health products and services, or dependent or elder care services.

- Federal Health Benefits Program (FEHB)
- Federal Dental and Vision Insurance Program (FEDVIP)
- Federal Flexible Spending Account Program (FSA)
- Federal Group Life Insurance Program (FEGLI)
- Federal Long Term Care Insurance Program (FLTCIP)
