OPM launches Katrina Web site for feds

The Office of Personnel Management today unveiled a Web site to centralize information for federal employees affected by the Hurricane Katrina disaster.

The site includes links to information about federal retiree benefits, donation of leave time to federal employees affected by the disaster and Katrina disaster relief, among other topics.

The Web site is supplemented by a toll-free assistance hotline number—800-307-8298— for current and retired federal employees and annuitants in the Gulf Coast area. The toll-free line will be open between 7 a.m. and 9 p.m. Monday through Friday, Central Time, OPM said.

"During this critical time, OPM's priority is to offer assistance and open communication lines with our employees, annuitants and their families in the impacted region," OPM Director Linda M. Springer said via a press statement.
