Government-offered buyouts


Q: I turned 62 in September. I have 29 years of service as a FERS employee. I’m thinking of retiring Jan 31. I work for the Federal Aviation Administration. Is there any possibility that the government will offer buyouts or early buyouts before I retire? Or is it a possibility that they will offer them later in the year?

A: We have no information about potential early retirement opportunities or buyouts. Your best source of information about them will come from your own agency.
