(2) Retirees may not defer enrollment in retiree term life insurance, except as allowed in subsection (3)(b) of this section.
(3) If a retiree returns to active employment status and becomes eligible for the employer contribution toward PEBB employee life insurance, they may choose:

(b) To stop self-paying retiree term life insurance premiums during the period they are eligible for PEBB employee life insurance and reelect retiree term life insurance when they are no longer eligible for the employer contribution toward PEBB employee life insurance.
