The forms available on OPM.gov are divided by category. Standard Forms are used for various employment and benefits programs, such as veteran's preference. Retirement and Insurance forms are used to process the self-named benefits for government employees and military personnel. Federal Investigation forms are used for information and investigative purposes, specifically in regards to sensitive positions and background checks. Optional forms are for purposes not covered under other categories.

Many forms on the OPM website are not in sync with the Supreme Courts ruling against the Defense of Marriage Act allowing same-sex partners to share benefits as of 2015. The OPM is updating the forms for better use for individuals with same-sex spouses.

The OPM also manages federal job postings at USAJOBS.gov, sets policy on governmental regulation, conducts background investigations and audits the federal civil service.
