Frequently Asked Questions Retirement

What kind of out-of-pocket expenses will OPM reimburse?

OPM will reimburse out-of-pocket expenses such as payments of additional Social Security taxes, payment of additional retirement deductions, and other out-of-pocket expenses that you incurred because of a retirement coverage error.

OPM cannot pay you for claimed losses related to lost investment opportunities. Claimed losses related to forgone contributions and earnings under the Thrift Savings Plan (TSP) won't be paid as out-of-pocket expenses. Lost earnings on make-up contributions to the TSP will be paid directly to your TSP account by your employing agency.
