OPM Announces 2011 Open Season Webcasts

Washington, DC - Beginning November 2, 2011, the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) will host a series of Webcasts for federal employees and retirees that will educate and inform on the Open Season process. The webcasts will discuss topics such as "Introduction to Open Season," "Do I have the Right Health Benefits Program?" and "The Federal Flexible Spending Account Program."

Each webcast will begin at 1:30 p.m. EST and will require a broadband (high-speed) internet connection. If you are viewing the webcasts from an office, due to bandwidth issues, the webcast should be viewed in one central location. The webcast stream will be available 24 hours before the webcast stream is scheduled to begin. You will need Windows Media Player 9.x or higher to view the webcast.
