If insured status or the PIA is affected by the exclusion of the PHS service, suggest
that the claimant contact OPM to determine:
if eligible for a Civil Service annuity based on the service in question; and
the effects on present and future Civil Service payments if they waive the annuity
based on the service.
Advise the claimant to write to OPM at this address:
Office of Personnel Management
Civil Service Retirement Section
Chief of Section
Post Adjudicative Division
1900 E. Street, N.W.
Washington, DC 20415
Mark the envelope “Deliver Unopened.” The letter should refer to the P.L. that applies.
