Q: I have been affected by the National Reassessment Process by the Postal Service. I was sent home and told there is no longer work available for me within my restrictions after being accommodated for the past 11 years. Would I be eligible for discontinued service retirement, and how would I go about getting it? By the way, I am two months from turning 56 years old and I have 25+ years of service as a FERS employee.
A: You would only be eligible for discontinued service retirement if your agency sends you an official notice of intent to separate you.
