Frequently Asked Questions Retirement

I applied to buy back my military leave, but my annuity hasn’t changed. Where can I find the status of my application?

If you are a federal retiree, contact OPM’s Retirement Office at 1-888-767-6738 or to check the status of your request.  The phone lines are open from 7:30 am to 7:45 pm (Eastern Standard Time). It is a busy phone number so we encourage you to call early in the morning or after 5:00 pm when the phone lines are less busy.
