Frequently Asked Questions Retirement

I am a current employee and recently received a copy of my Letter of Ineligibility. I noticed that OPM sent this letter to my agency who sent a copy to me with a decision letter stating there is no retirement coverage error in my case. Why was the letter sent to my agency and not directly to me?

Under OPM regulations your agency makes retirement coverage decisions. OPM sends the letter to your agency so that your agency can review the information. Once your agency reviews the letter and confirms our findings, they send a final decision letter to you. The decision from your agency that your retirement coverage is correct, in other words that you are ineligible for relief under FERCCA, may be appealed to the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB), if you choose to do so.
