Frequently Asked Questions Investigations

How can I confirm that someone who wishes to interview me as part of a background investigation for a prospective employee is legitimate; i.e., does, in fact, work for this office?


The identity of OPM investigators can be confirmed through Federal Investigative Services’ Security and Safety Team.  There are two ways to confirm the identity of an investigator; by phone at 888/795-5673 option 1 or by e-mail to FISSST@opm.gov.
