Q. I work at Robins Air Force Base in Georgia. I am assigned to Defense Logistics Agency (DLA), Richmond, Va. I know that each agency makes the decision to offer the early out to their employees. I have worked for the Air Force for 29 years of my 33-year career. I am 53 years old, and I am ready to retire today! I don’t recall an early out being offered to DLA in the last five years. Will DLA offer an early out to their employees at Robins?
A. We don’t get advance notice of early retirement offers. We learn about them at the same time as an agency’s employees do.
