Raymond J. Kirk, Manager, Retirement Services, OPM and Philip Gardner, HR Specialist, Retirement Benefits, OPM
All HR Professionals who handle retirement packages.
The class will outline and discuss the purpose of the Benefits Administration Letter (BAL), which is designed to provide guidance on submitting “healthy” retirement application pack-ages to OPM for adjudication. A healthy retirement package is defined as a complete and accurate package that does not need to be further developed for missing, inaccurate or discrepant information. The BAL describes, form by form, the information OPM is looking for to enable you to submit complete and accurate retirement packages.
Please arrive by 12:30 pm to go through security, check-in and be seated for our 1:00 pm start.
