The Office of Personnel Management continues its slow but steady reduction of the backlog of outstanding retirement claims, realizing a reduction of about 15% last month.
For the month of June, OPM received 6,627 new claims and processed 8,787 to bring the total backlog down to 12,391. OPM was estimating that it would receive 8,000 claims in June and process 8,100.
OPM also added a new feature to its monthly retirement processing status report: the percentage of claims processed in 60 days or less. According to the data from June, 77.3% were processed in under 60 days and 76.6% were done in May.
