Frequently Asked Questions Retirement

I received a letter from OPM stating that there is no error in my retirement coverage and I have 30 days to file an appeal with the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB), if I choose to do so. Is that 30 calendar days or 30 working days?

You must file the appeal with the MSPB within 30 calendar days after the date you receive the decision letter.
