Early retirement payment


Q. I retired with the VERA/VSIP on April 30, 2012. I chose the option to receive my $25,000 bonus in two installments, half six months from the date I retired and the other half six months later. I received the first installment and was told I would receive the second installment April 30, 2013. I have not received it. What do I need to do?

A. Call your former employer’s personnel office and ask them to find out what’s causing the delay.
