Published: November 23, 2016

Open Season is the time of year when you have the opportunity to make decisions about your benefits under the Federal Flexible Spending Account Program (FSAFEDS), the Federal Employees Dental and Vision Insurance Program (FEDVIP), and the Federal Employees Health Benefits (FEHB) Program.

If you already have an FSAFEDS account, it will not continue automatically: you must re-enroll for 2017.
