Hurricane Harvey

Note: OPM will provide information on this page and social networks to relay new human resources (HR) information. We will provide reminders about HR benefits and flexibilities which are already available for those affected by Hurricane Harvey.

For those in the affected area without mail service, payments will be held at the USPS facility in Dallas, Texas until the local post office opens. If you reside in one of the affected areas and have trouble receiving your annuity check in the mail, contact retirement services 1-888-767-6738:

  • Change from a check to Direct Deposit/EFT, or
  • Change the payment address to another address.

The Treasury Department confirmed that there were no disruptions in electronic fund transfer (EFT) payments caused by Hurricane Harvey.

Visit the United States Postal Service (USPS) website for alerts on mail delivery service and post office status of operations.

Visit the Internal Revenue website to learn how the IRS is providing help to victims of Hurricane Harvey.
