First annuity check


Q. I took the early-out with a retirement date of Feb. 28. When will I receive my first retirement check? And when will I receive my first incentive check?

A. Only the Office of Personnel Management knows when you’ll receive your first annuity payment, which, by the way, will be an interim amount until they finalize your case. And only your former agency’s payroll office can tell you when you’ll receive your incentive payment.
