On March 7, 2021, President Biden issued Executive Order 14019, Promoting Access to Voting.  Agencies subject to the order (including FMCS), are required to promote nonpartisan voter registration, engagement, and participation.

As part of this order, FMCS would like to direct employees, affiliates, stakeholders, other parties, and members of the public to voter information found on the website www.vote.gov and to ensure that your voter registration information is up to date.

Voter participation is important to a well-functioning democratic republic, as established by our Constitution. Our government – federal, state, and local – is elected by the citizens. Citizens vote for their government officials and these officials represent the concerns and ideas of the citizens in government. For example, your Governor is elected by the voters in your state. The Governor is in charge of the executive branch for your state. Voting is one important way that we can participate in our democracy. Besides voting for officials, we also vote on issues. Voters may want to make changes to their community, such as building bigger schools or adding new roads. Voting in an election is another critical way to participate in our democracy when we want to support or change a law.

If you’re at or nearing 65, OPEIU has an exciting new option to help save you money and provide dependable health care benefits during your retirement.

OPEIU is pleased to now offer our Medicare-eligible union retirees comprehensive Medicare Advantage plans through a trusted national partner, Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield. These plans are available exclusively to retired OPEIU members and their spouses/partners and cannot be found or bought on the open Medicare market.

These plans offer enhanced services compared to the Individual Medicare market, brand name prescription drug benefits and gap (“donut hole”) coverage, nationwide access and value-added programs (like SilverSneakers® gym membership, telehealth, hearing and more).

To help you learn more about the program and decide if it’s right for you, OPEIU will be hosting an informational webinar on Wednesday, Oct. 6 at 3 p.m. EDT. Representatives will explain the many features of the plan and answer your questions. Please register here:
