On Tuesday, Congressman Andy Biggs and 13 of his House colleagues sent a letter to the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) regarding reports that there have been unacceptable delays in the processing of retirement paperwork for retirees from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). These delays have resulted in months of uncertainty and financial hardship for many.

“These heroic men and women put their lives on the line and rightly deserve their hard-earned compensation,”  said Congressman Andy Biggs.  

“Waiting as long as a year to receive payments is unacceptable—especially amid one of the worst inflationary crises in modern history.

“CBP retirees and employees approaching retirement age deserve answers from President Biden’s OPM.”

The full letter may be read here.

Co-signers include: Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC), Rep. David Schweikert (R-AZ), Rep. Byron Donalds (R-FL), Rep. Glenn Grothman (R-WI), Rep. Randy Weber (R-TX), Rep. Pete Sessions (R-TX), Rep. Fred Keller (R-PA), Rep. Michael Cloud (R-TX), Rep. Debbie Lesko (R-AZ), Rep. Jody Hice (R-GA), Rep. Tom Tiffany (R-WI), Rep. Paul Gosar DDS (R-AZ), and Rep. Clay Higgins (R-LA).
