Frequently Asked Questions Retirement

I no longer work for the Government, but I was in the wrong retirement plan during my employment. What do I do now?

If you are separated from the Federal Government and you believe you are eligible under FERCCA, you should contact your former Federal agency's Human Resources Office. OPM works with representatives from your former agency to provide guidance in determining an employee's eligibility for relief under FERCCA. You will be asked some preliminary information to assess your potential eligibility, however, a final determination can not be made until your Official Personnel Folder (OPF) is reviewed. You will be notified of your eligibility in writing.
