Q. I am a CSRS employee, and I already qualify for an immediate retirement. I plan to retire May 3.
On the retirement application (SF 2801), under Section B, block 2 is called “Date of final separation.”
I entered May 3 because it is at the end of a pay period.
I need to know:
1. Will I receive eight hours of annual leave since my last work day is at the end of the pay period?
2. Will my first retirement check come June 1 because I retired during one of the first three days of a month (May 3)?
A. Your assumptions are correct.
