The number of federal employees filing retirement claims in April dipped below expectations following months of unexpectedly high numbers, according to new data from the Office of Personnel Management. OPM received 7,059 claims last month, about 1,000 fewer than expected.
The Office of Personnel Management says sequestration cuts have forced the agency to suspend overtime hours for employees working in its Retirement Services office and to curtail call-center hours.
For the third month in a row, the number of federal employees filing retirement claims outpaced the Office of Personnel Management's projections. OPM received 10,183 retirement claims in March, more than double the number it expected to receive, according to new OPM data..
Fewer federal employees filed for retirement in December than in any other month in 2012, according to the Office of Personnel Management. Even with the fewer than expected number of claims, however, the agency failed to meet its goal of processing 11,500 claims, instead clocking in just 10,454.
For the fourth straight month, the number of federal employees filing for retirement has outstripped the Office of Personnel Management's expectations, according to new data released by the agency. OPM also beat its projections for processing retirement claims.
OPM made changes to successfully chip away at an ongoing inadequacy, but the progress came after years of complaints from retired federal employees and urgings from lawmakers.

Federal employees submitted nearly 9,000 retirement claims in August - more than in any other month besides January, which typically sees a wave of feds taking retirement. The Office of Personnel Management received 8,973 retirement claims in August, nearly a thousand more than it projected. The agency processed 11,896 claims, also surpassing its goals.
