  • Interim Pension
    I retired 12/31/11. I'm still on an interim pension of 36% of my agency's estimate. OPM has provided no explanation for such a low amount. In response to my e-mail inquiry, after waiting 28 business days, all they told me was that my case was in another office. When I asked what office, they told me it was the CSRS Pending office. Sounds like purgatory. I feel they're denying me my ability to fully participate in this year's election. I'd like to be able to contribute to candidates I want to support, but I have to refrain from any non-essential spending, since I don't know how long it will be before I receive a real pension. I've postponed travel and home improvements because of this. I'd like to get on with my life, but OPM is standing in the way.
