OPM To Recalculate Some Survivor And Disability Annuities

Due to changes in interpretation of the applicable statutes that have evolved over time, the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) announced this week that it needs to perform a recalculation for many who are receiving a disability annuity or a survivor annuity.

OPM is looking for anyone receiving a disability annuity or a survivor annuity based wholly or in part on service in any of the following positions under the Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) or the Federal Employees Retirement System (FERS):

* Law Enforcement Officer
* Firefighter
* Nuclear Materials Courier performed with the Department of Energy on or after October 1, 1977
* Customs and Border Protection Officer on or after July 6, 2008
* Member of the Capitol Police
* Member of the Supreme Court Police
* Congressional Employee
* Air Traffic Controller

According to OPM, if the recalculation results in an annuity benefit higher than the benefit someone is receiving, OPM will adjust the annuity to the higher amount.

OPM also states: "We will also compare the total amount of annuity we have paid you since your annuity began based on our original computation with the total amount of annuity we would have paid you under the revised computation, and pay you any additional amount of annuity you may be due. If the recalculation does not result in a higher annuity benefit, we will so notify you and no change will be made to your annuity."

OPM has asked that those who have any questions, or would like to request a review of their case, to email OPM at fedretireinfo@opm.gov or call 1 (888) 767-6738.
