Frequently Asked Questions Retirement

My retirement coverage error was corrected before FERCCA became law. I had to pay for things that are now covered under FERCCA. Is there any way I can recover the money I paid?

FERCCA allows OPM to compensate individuals for certain expenses and losses related to correction of a retirement coverage error.

OPM will issue detailed guidance regarding the specific types of expenses and losses that will be compensated. You will receive our guidance as soon as it is available if you are registered on the FERCCA File Database.
