Sandy Shouldn’t Cause Delay in Retirement Payments

by Ian Smith |

Hurricane Sandy caused the federal government and stock market to shut down for two days, but despite that, federal retirees shouldn’t see a disruption in their retirement income.

The Office of Personnel Management, whose payment-processing center is in Western Pennsylvania, said in a statement, “We do not expect any interruption in retirement claims process, and the call center remains open.”

Social Security recipients who get their payments via direct deposit shouldn’t see any disruptions either.

However, recipients who get their payments by check and live in areas affected by the hurricane could encounter delays if local mail service has been disrupted. The Postal Service has a comprehensive list of Post Office locations impacted by the hurricane and what services are affected at each location on its web site.
