Q. Can an employee get both the VERA and the VSIP together?
A: Yes, if your agency offers you both. The Voluntary Early Retirement Authority is designed to encourage employees to retire if they meet the reduced age and service requirement: age 50 with 20 years of service or at any age with 25. The Voluntary Separation Incentive Payment is a financial incentive designed to encourage employees to leave, whether or not they are eligible to retire.
