COMMENTS

If k >= n, then n + k! is divisible by n and is not prime.

a(n) < A020639(n), because if prime p divides n then p divides n + k! for k >= p. - Robert Israel, Aug 10 2014

There is no term for n = 1 since factorial primes 1 + k! can probably be arbitrarily large (A002981 shows k values). - Jens Kruse Andersen, Aug 13 2014
