Retirement incentives


Q. I am thinking of retiring on Jan. 1. If, by chance, incentives for retirement were given at our base at the end of this year, would I still be given it if I had already sent my paperwork in?

A. Not likely. The purpose of cash incentives is to encourage people to retire who had not planned to do so, not to reward those who have already made that decision.
