So, as for benefits stateside...do any of you want to share your thoughts on which plans I should choose for family health and dental/vision. Big family and I'm looking at some braces in our near future.

Any other advice about federal benefits or retirement?
Mary Health: Foreign Service Benefit Plan is great for prevention. It allows 40 chiropractic, 40 massage and 40 acupuncture visits per year, per person, no copay deductible if in network (basically they reimburse up to $60 and most in-network are below that). Many of their other services were better than other plans I have had in the past.

Mary Actually, I use the same overseas; although if my kids were all staying with me overseas I would probably drop the vision and dental (inexpensive out of pocket where I am), but my college daughter may need them during the school-year state-side.
BusinessShan Thank Mary! So the foreign service plan can be used as a DDESS employee?
Mary Yes. I used it in the USA and still use it overseas.
