      OPM customer service 1-888-767-6738 always goes direct to busy when called. WWW notes this number does work early in the morning, not true by my tests.

      The ones I tested don’t work:

      717980-xxxx is ‘disconnected’

      501377-99xx someone answers…

      714xxx-1117 rings

      216xxx-9887 rings

      Haven’t found one that gives busy tone
