facing overpayment demands from the Department have complained that
they are not well informed about the standards used by the Department
in considering their requests for waiver or financial hardship showings.
The OPM Financial Resources Questionnaire
(RI 34-1) and "Policy
Guidelines on the Disposition of Overpayments under the Civil Service
Retirement System and the Federal Employees' Retirement System",
which are used throughout the federal government in these kinds of cases,
can be useful references in requesting waivers or other relief. For
more information, call or email Retiree Activities Coordinator Bonnie
Brown at 202 944 5509 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
