Survey

NOTE: SURVEY PERIOD HAS ENDED

OPM is administering a web survey to gather information on how individuals enrolled in retiree health benefits through the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program (FEHBP) rate their experience with their health plan. The Federal Annuitant Benefits Survey is designed to assess how well your FEHBP plan is meeting your needs. We want to hear about your experience so we can continuously improve the FEHBP! The survey also includes some questions on overall health and wellness so we can better understand the needs of the annuitant population. Your responses are anonymous and your feedback will help OPM and health carriers to better serve annuitants in the future. Please click HERE to participate in the Federal Annuitant Benefits Survey today!


Retirement Services conducts various surveys throughout the year. These surveys are sent to a particular sector of the annuitant population.

One of these surveys, the Federal Employees Retirement System (FERS) Annuity Supplement Survey was recently mailed to all FERS non-disability annuitants under age 62 receiving an annuity supplement. These individuals are receiving a supplemental payment in addition to their FERS annuity benefit.

Continued receipt of the annuity supplement is subject to an earnings test every year and can be affected by wages earned by the annuitant after retirement. Retirement Services surveys these annuitants every year while they are in receipt of the annuity supplement to ask for reported earnings. The annuitant must complete the form; sign, date and include a daytime telephone number. If you are a FERS annuitant and receive one of these surveys, please complete it and return it to Retirement Services as soon as possible.

Any questions should be directed to Retirement Benefits Branch at 202-606-0249.

Federal Law requires the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) to verify that Federal Retirement payments are made to the appropriate individuals and that all payments are accurate based on their status.  To ensure benefits are correct and make sure OPM is aware of any changes in status, OPM sends annual surveys to verify the accuracy of information on file.  OPM sends surveys to all annuitants under the age of 60 receiving a Disability Benefit, students between the ages of 18-22 or person assigned as the Representative Payee for an annuitant, and individuals receiving Annuity Supplement benefits prior to the age of 62.  Each survey asks specific questions regarding one’s status.  If you meet the criteria, you are required to respond in order to  maintain eligibility for continued benefits.  Failure to respond in a timely manner are likely to result in the suspension of benefits.  Additionally, non-responses could result in  overpayments of benefits and such benefits must be repaid.  Please remember to report all changes in direct deposit accounts, correspondence and email addresses to OPM since misdirected payments and undeliverable mail may also result in suspension of benefits.
