    I’d like to take a moment to introduce myself as the new Associate Director for Retirement Services at OPM.   My name is Ken Zawodny and assumed my current duties in August of this year.   I have been with OPM for almost 3 years, my most recent assignment was with Federal Investigations Service (FIS).  Prior to OPM, I was with the Department of Homeland Security.  I am both honored and excited to be part of such an important organization.  I plan to send brief messages to you on a regular basis, informing you of major events and issues that may affect you as retirees and survivors.

    We work hard every day to honor the service of Federal employees by trying to make the transition to retirement easier.  As you may know, there have been a lot of comments about the services we are providing.  I can assure you, we are working with all agency partners, others involved in retirement operations and most importantly, with annuitants, to be more successful.  Please remember to visit the Retirement Services Information website  at for the most up to date information. 

    And remember, we need your most current postal address and email addresses so we can keep the lines of communication going.  You can send this information to us through  Also, be sure to follow us on Twitter on our website or your Smart Phone.  Thanks and have a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday.
