And the boilerplate processing time for retirement claims alone by one day to 60, which is absolutely how continued it took a year prior, but federal allowances able Tammy Flanagan said that will acceptable access if you affirmation was not candy afore the shutdown.
“There’s a adjournment alike if there wasn’t a furlough, unfortunately, because the archetypal retirement processing takes about two months already the affirmation gets to the Office of Personnel Management,” she said on Federal Drive with Tom Temin. “But in some cases the affirmation hasn’t alike larboard the bureau because the agent aloof larboard at the end of December, so there may be a brace added weeks or alike a ages in the adjournment at the bureau akin afore the affair alike gets to OPM.”
