Incentive offered on retirement date


Q. I retired on Oct. 1, 2012; a special incentive was offered the same day. The Office of Personnel Management said I would be eligible to take the incentive. I received a letter from HRSSC in November 2012 saying I was approved for incentive. How do I find out if I get a check this month?

A. Since your agency is paying the incentive, not OPM, you’ll have to check with your former agencies payroll office.
