Postponing retirement date


Q. If my retirement application shows a retirement date of Jan. 2, 2014, what is the process to postpone retirement until March 2, 2014? How far ahead is notification for a change in retirement date submitted?

A. There are no rules on this. However, the sooner you make the change, the easier it will be for your agency to accommodate your request.
