Life Changing Events

Life changing events are significant personal events that may impact your health insurance, life insurance or other federal benefits. Often, you should notify your employer of a life changing event to ensure that you and/or your family receive the benefits you expect.

Some examples of life changing events are:

  • Becoming Disabled
  • Moving
  • Leaving or Changing Jobs
  • Retiring
  • Being Called to or From Military Duty
  • Having a Child or Adopting a Child
  • A Child Coming of Age
  • Getting Married or Divorced
  • Caring for a Sick Loved One
  • Your Death or the Death of a Loved One

For more information about how life changing events may impact your benefits and what action you may need to take if you experience an event, please visit the Office of Personnel Management’s Life Events page.

For Civilian Pay questions, please contact your Customer Service Representative (CSR). Contact your immediate supervisor for more details.
