  • 5 year period before retirement
  • 1 year before retirement
  • 4 to 6 months before retirement

Employees and Agencies should begin planning for retirement around 5 years before an employee’s first eligibility for retirement. This will help insure that the employee’s benefits coverage is correct and properly documented and that any deposits due for civilian or military service are paid at the time of retirement.

  • You ever worked in a temporary Federal job
  • You were in the military
  • You had a break in your Federal employment history and took a refund of your retirement contributions
