OPM has released its latest monthly report showing the status of how the agency is progressing with processing retirement applications.

The latest report shows an uptick in the number of claims received, but the overall inventory is down slightly over the last month. The number of claims the agency has processed has remained fairly steady throughout the year, and the agency has generally stayed ahead of the number received which has enabled the total inventory of claims to come down gradually.

The number of claims received in June was 7,814 which is 291 more than in May. 8,964 claims were processed in June, 102 less than were processed in May. However, despite this statistic, the total inventory of claims was down to 48,323 in June from 49,473 in May.

The June report contains the full set of the latest available data.
