Excepted service and RIF


Q. I am 52 years old and have 12 years in a federal excepted service position. Due to my excepted service status, do I understand correctly that I have no bump or retreat rights in the event of a reduction in force? For what retirement benefits would I be eligible under these circumstances?

A. If you left your contributions in the retirement fund, you would be eligible for a deferred annuity at age 62.
