Check Your OPF

Take the Time to Check Your Official Personnel Folder

Every federal employee should make time to check their Official Personnel Folder (OPF) at least once a year.  We also recommend you download a complete copy (it is an option). Since most agencies have transitioned to the Electronic Official Personnel Folder system (E-OPF), doing so no longer requires an unwelcome trip to Human Resources and dealing with uninviting clerks. Follow your agency instructions (contact your local HR if needed) to access your E-OPF or visit the Official Personnel Management (OPM) E-OPF portal log-in at this link:

Important Note:  If you separate from the agency, for any reason, you will lose access to your Electronic Official Personnel Folder.  Therefore, for example, if the agency proposes your removal, we recommend you immediately download a full copy prior to the agency decision (in the event it does not go your way).
