Employee Benefits Information System (EBIS) at NIH


EBIS is a web-based HHS-wide enterprise application designed to provide your retirement and benefits information. With this self-service tool, you can view a statement of your benefits, use retirement calculators to perform "what-if" scenarios and view informational seminars all through the internet. EBIS is available to you, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Over 40 different forms relating to retirement, health insurance, life insurance and TSP are available for you to fill out and print for submission.

EBIS is entirely browser based and all of its reports and forms utilize Adobe PDF®. EBIS is an intuitive interface which allows employees to perform all tasks without training. Additionally, all data is secured using 128 bit Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption—a powerful technology that protects an employee’s password and all information relating to the employee and his or her personal information from unauthorized access.

Information Library

EBIS provides a comprehensive reference library of information relating to Federal benefits, covering the Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS), Federal Employees Retirement System (FERS), Federal Employees Health Benefits (FEHB), Federal Employees Group Life Insurance (FEGLI), Thrift Savings Plan (TSP), and Social Security topics. This library is organized by topic area and can also be searched by keywords.

Retirement Calculators

Several estimators and calculators are available so you can perform “what if” scenarios concerning these retirement benefits:

  • Retirement Annuity
  • High Three Average Salary
  • TSP Annuity
  • TSP Projected Account Balance

These calculators produce estimates of retirement benefits based on “potentially” creditable service. This means you may have service that is included in the calculation that may not actually be creditable, such as active military service where a deposit has not been paid. If you believe the estimate includes service that may not be creditable, you may request your benefit contact review your service history and provide you verification.
