Q. I saw a recent post in which you correctly stated that an employee is not eligible for a VSIP if he previously received a VSIP. The OPM regulations do not appear to allow an exception to this rule even if an employee repaid the full amount of the VSIP because of a return to federal service. Am I reading the regulation correctly or is there an exception to the general rule that I could not find?
A. No, there isn’t.
