The information that follows is an overview prepared by the Office of Personnel Management (OPM). More detailed information on each benefit program is available from the agency that administers the program. Employees or their survivors should seek more detailed information from their employing agency, which has the employee's records. Employing agencies also have needed forms and can provide assistance in completing them. The 1-800-307-8298 emergency phone number provided here will only be available during emergencies. Emergency information will be posted on OPM's Website at www.opm.gov.
