    OPM’s retirement application backlog falls to lowest point all year – By Molly Weisner (Federal Times) / Dec 8, 2023

    In November, the federal government’s retirement backlog fell to its lowest point in the last twelve months, while processing times also shortened significantly.

    According to fresh data reported by the Office of Personnel Management, the agency shaved off about a week from its monthly processing times, meaning the average case took 66 days last month.

    The overall number of pending cases also shrunk about 5% to 15,826 cases, still about 3,000 cases above OPM’s target level. The agency also received fewer applications in November than it did October.

    Since January, OPM has dramatically improved how long the average retiree must wait for their application to be finalized. With some slowdowns along the way, OPM is well below the 85-plus days it was taking to process files this time last year.
