VERA eligibility


Q: I am contemplating retiring on the 2011 VERA/VSIP offer. If I took a VSIP in 1995 and returned to federal employment in 2002, am I eligible to receive a VERA in 2011?

A: There isn’t any bar to your accepting another offer of early retirement. However, you are barred for life from accepting another Voluntary Separation Incentive Payment.
