Health Insurance

Federal employees have the option to choose from a wide variety of health plans. This Office of Personnel Management (OPM) site contains information about federal employee health insurance policies, eligibility information, enrollment procedures, open seasons and more. Army civilian employees are guaranteed protection that cannot be canceled by the insurance carrier. Additionally, employees receive government contribution toward the cost of their plans, unless they are on a temporary appointment.

Retirement Savings Plan

The Thrift Savings Plan (TSP) is a retirement and savings investment plan for federal employees and uniformed service members, including the Ready Reserve. TSP is a defined contribution plan, meaning that retirement income received from a TSP account depends on the amount the employee, and possibly the employee’s agency, put into the account during the employee’s working years and the earnings accumulated over that time.

Flexible Spending Accounts

Through FSA FEDS, federal employees can contribute money to their flexible spending account before taxes are withheld. Employees are then reimbursed for out-of-pocket healthcare and dependent-care expenses.

In addition to 11 paid holidays, Department of the Army employees can earn annual and sick leave each pay period. The accrual rate is established by the Office of Personnel Management and determined by the employee’s schedule (full time, part time, etc.) and length of government service. Visit OPM Civilian Leave to learn more about Army civilian employee leave, leave accrual rates and employee leave ceilings.

Family Leave

Under the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 (FMLA), most federal employees are entitled to a total of up to 12 workweeks of unpaid leave during any 12-month period for various, set reasons.

Paid Parental Leave

Paid parental leave under FEPLA is limited to 12 work weeks and may be used during the 12-month period beginning on the date of the birth or placement involved.  Within these 12 work weeks, paid parental leave is available as long as an employee has a continuing parental role with the child whose birth or placement was the basis for the leave entitlement.
