Special provision employees and VERA


Q. Special provision employees’ careers are much shorter than those of typical federal employees.The “20 years service and 50 years old or 25 at any age” requirement for Voluntary Early Retirement Authority  mirrors our normal retirement plan. Is there a VERA rule that would allow a firefighter/air traffic controller/ law enforcement officer to get out earlier than the 20 years and 50 years old?

A. No.
