See agency-specific benefits under FEHB Subsidy. Premiums are withheld from your salary on a pre-tax basis.
FEGLI provides group term life insurance. A new federal employee eligible for FEGLI is automatically enrolled in Basic Life Insurance Coverage and has the option to elect additional coverage.

TSP is a retirement savings and investment plan for federal employees. The TSP is a defined contribution plan and is one part of the three-part FERS retirement plan that also includes a Basic Benefit and Social Security. You have the option to contribute to the Traditional plan or Roth plan. You can contribute up to the IRS Elective Deferral amount each year. New hires are automatically enrolled to contribute 3 percent into the traditional pretax TSP option.

Each dollar of the next 2 percent of biweekly basic pay will be matched 50 cents on the dollar.
