Changing retirement date


Q. What would be the difference if I changed my retirement date from July 31 to July 27? I have already turned my papers in, so what would I need to do if I decide to change the date?

A. You would receive two weeks of additional pay and be closer to Aug. 1, the date on which you’d be on the annuity roll. You’d also earn two more weeks of annual and sick leave.
