Separation before NTE date and unemployment compensation


Q. If a federal re-employed annuitant is let go prior to his “Not to Exceed” date not for cause (i.e. to save money), is he entitled to unemployment compensation?

A. Highly unlikely because you are already receiving an annuity. However, you would have to check with your state employment office to be sure.
