FERS Retirement Process – time frame?

What is the current time frame to have your retirement processed? I have received the retirement services reference card which stated “we have started to process your retirement application” and now patiently waiting for my password. Reference card was sent out on March 17, 2017.

Unfortunately, there is no guideline on timeframe. If you are pure CSRS, those seem to get through the system rather quickly as they have been around the longest and are pretty straightforward. CSRS Offsets take longer as they have to calculate the Offset which begins at age 62. For pure FERS that are eligible for the FERS supplement, those too seems to take longer, anywhere from 4-6 months before finalization. The good news, however, is they do put you in some form a interim payments until the process can be completed. Here is a link with the latest information on timeline for processing retirements at OPM. https://www.opm.gov/about-us/budget-performance/strategic-plans/retirement-processing-status.pdf

OPM recently stated they are placing retirees in interim pay within 5 days of receipt of the retirement application. That means your agency has sent your paperwork to your agency finance center and the finance center has completed their end of the application, sent you your final check and AL payment and closed out your payroll records. OPM also said they are taking about 63 days from receipt of the application to finalize retirements.

When it comes to Disabiliry retirements they need to go through the approval process before payment can be authorized. Are you saying you submitted disability paperwork in October? If yes, they are running 6-9 months for disability depending on the disability.

Any disability approval is based on the medical condition and the proper documentation to support the claim.
