Roughly 540,000 of the 1.9 million calls the Office of Personnel Management’s Retirement Services received from federal annuitants in fiscal 2015 were abandoned, OPM’s inspector general found.

The Office of Personnel Management said scammers are posing as federal agents and trying to get money from federal retirees.
The Office of Personnel Management is warning federal annuitants of a second scam this year. This time, companies are offering cash payments in exchange for all or part of a federal employee’s future annuity payment. OPM’s Office of Inspector General is also continuing its 30-year push to get Congress to include the Federal Employee Health Benefits Program (FEHBP) in the Anti-Kickback Statute.
