Postal Service employees who have dental or vision insurance through BENEFEDS did not receive a payroll deduction during the Dec. 31, 2022-Jan. 13, 2023, pay period.
Benefits are still active and deductions will resume during the Jan. 14-27 pay period.
Employees do not need to take any action or pay a catch-up deduction to account for the missing deduction.
Additionally, employees who are enrolled in the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program will see their new 2023 premium rates reflected in the Jan. 14-27 pay period.
Employees who contributed to the Combined Federal Campaign will see their deductions begin during the Jan. 28-Feb. 3 pay period.
Employees who have payroll concerns other than missing deductions should call the USPS Accounting Service Center at 866-974-2733. Employees who have dental and vision insurance questions should call BENEFEDS at 877-888-3337.
