They received the application paperwork in November, two months early. First payment should have been in January. I got the CSA Number on Feb 14th and nothing since. They told me by email the other day it could be June before anything further happens.

I don't call that efficient.

Maybe I'll hear something before then, who knows. They certainly don't. Something about 'we are waiting for a legal administrative specialist they are the ones that actually do the calculations and complete your retirement.'

Still nothing.

Office of Perpetual Mismanagement.

Exactly the kind of office that gives Government workers a reputation of incompetence.

You are saying your retirement paperwork has nit been finalized on 20 years?

I am not sure why you waited 20 years after you retired to apply for pension! That is your opinion about OPM as I retired on December 31 and was finalized on March 5. They were very efficient and accurate! I am quite pleased with my outcome.

Looking at posts from several years ago, it appears that he left federal employment in 1998 after 7 years of service. Therefore, he obviously waited until age 62 (or perhaps later) when he qualified and applied for a deferred annuity. My guess is that the delay in processing is caused by recreating his employment history, confirming eligibility, and determining the proper annuity amount. But, that's just a guess.

See? It really isn't that hard to work out.

But I finally got it. Seven full months after applying in November. They sat on it and did nothing at all until January stating 'we don't even look at them until the effective date'. Then it took five months from there.

A efficient and properly managed agency would begin processing upon receipt and payments would begin when due. That how both SSA and TSP handled my applications. OPM doesn't handle nearly the volume of the others so there is no excuse for their delays.

See how long it takes to recreate a history to see what is going on?

Your post #1521 read like you just retired.

You might go back to work before your retirement date. So why would the waste their time finalizing your paperwork until your final work day?

Retired December 2018 US Air Force

Got my Annual Leave payment in 4 weeks.

My first check in about 7 weeks.

Blue book in about 12 weeks.

Since then I've had to make a weekly call to the OPM. They used my last 3 years working to calculate my retirement. Instead of the 3 years I worked in California.

This weeks excuse after 5 months of waiting. Is my records have been sent to storage. And will have to be retrieved.
