Overseas direct deposit


Q. I would like my FERS retirement monthly benefits direct deposited to my overseas account. What foreign countries does OPM allow direct deposit of retirement benefits? Is the Philippines on the list?

A. The Philippines is not one of the “blocked” countries, so your annuity payments can be sent there.
