Plan Details

Eligibility: The Rural Carrier Benefit Plan is part of the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program (FEHBP). All regular and part-time flexible (PTF) rural letter carriers are eligible to enroll in the plan, if they are NRLCA members in good standing. Retired NRLCA members, who are eligible to keep their FEHB coverage after retirement, are eligible to enroll in the plan. Also, certain leave replacement rural letter carriers (RCA, RCR, etc.), who are NRLCA members, may be eligible to enroll in the plan.
