Temporary Continuation of Coverage (TCC)
When a tribal employee separates from employment with a tribal employer and is eligible for Temporary Continuation of Coverage (TCC), the tribal employer must notify the tribal employee no later than 61 days after the tribal employee’s separation of their opportunity to elect TCC. This notice should include the tribal employee’s right to convert to an individual contract offered by their plan. This notice must explain their right to enroll in TCC and how the tribal employee can get the registration form and additional information.
If the tribal employee wants to elect TCC, the tribal employee must respond within the specified time limit. Learn more about TCC on the OPM website.
