Retirement & Financial Planning Report

For federal retirees, OPM handles many of the same types of transactions that agency personnel offices handle for active employees. Like personnel offices, OPM has increasingly automated those services in recent years.

◦ Change your federal and state income tax withholding
◦ Change your mailing address
◦ Change your password
◦ Establish an allotment to an organization
◦ Request a duplicate annuity booklet
◦ Set up a checking or savings allotment
◦ Sign up for direct deposit of your annuity payment
◦ Update your email address

◦ View/print your annuity statement
◦ View/print your 1099-R tax forms
◦ View/print your retirement services reference card (ID card)
◦ View/print your verification of your life insurance (FEGLI) coverage
◦ View the status of your case while you are in interim pay
