Retirement Services

 

Overview

You can pay OPM online, the same way you pay your utility, cable or other bills. It is convenient, simple and secure. OPM accepts online payments via your bank or pay.gov.

Why Pay Online?

It Saves Time
You can make same-day payments, which means you don't have to allow time for mailing. Plus, you can also setup recurring payments

It's Fast
Your payment gets processed quickly, and you don’t have to worry about a check getting lost.

It's Free
It doesn't cost you anything to pay online.

You Can Receive a Confirmationof Payment
You'll have an electricrecord of payment for easy, paperless record-keeping.

It Saves The Government Money
Checks are expensive to process (it costs nearly eighttimes more to process a single paper check than an electronic payment).

You Know When Your Payment Is Made
You can schedule your payment for a specific date. With a check, you don’t know exactly when it will clear.

It's Better For The Environment
There's no paper involved.

It's Secure
Our systems are secure, and protecting your financial data and personal information is a top priority.
