Claimant seeks payment of a bonus allegedly earned by her father
As provided in 31 U.S.C. 3702(b)(1), every claim against the
United States is barred unless such claim is received within 6
years after the date such claim first accrued. The Barring Act
specifically prescribes the time within which a claim must be
received in order for it to be considered on its merits. We have no
authority to disregard the provisions of that Act or waive the time
limitation it imposes.
This settlement is final. No further administrative review is
available within the Office of Personnel Management. Nothing in
this settlement limits the claimant's right to bring an action in
an appropriate United States Court.
