Big smile 370 days and I'm done!!!!!!!!! I just want to thank you for your support and encouragement. It meant a lot to me to have your support and encouragement (not to mention superb advice). I am going to celebrate with a new teabag!

Yayyy !!
The best ways of reaching OPM and having somebody respond seem to evolve from week to week and month to month. Glad so many folks have been willing to offer current advice to you and that you can finally stop worrying about when your finalization saga would end.

Congrats Lynn. It's way past time for something good to come your way from the benevolent and compassionate folks at OPM. I guess they had enough fun at your expense and moved on to fresher prey, so kick back, scream a shout of joy, a sigh of relieve, and treat yourself to something special.

Enjoy your retirementClapClapClapClap

Congratulations, Lynn. Even though it is way overdue, I'm sure it wouldn't have happened without your persistent efforts. Not to mention the new file that just came in that they could substitute for yours holding up the short leg of the desk.

I wonder if they're celebrating at OPM cuz I won't be harrassing them anymore Approve Haven't received back pay yet, is that unusual?

Congradulations Lynn, once the OPM website showed I was finalized it took about 5 days for the backpay to show in my bank account.

Backpay should show up shortly.  As I recall I received my backpay about a week after I received my bluebook.
