VSIP eligibility


Q. I’m 53 years old with 22 years of service. Will I be eligible for Voluntary Separation Incentive Pay, and would it be beneficial to retire early?

A. Yes, you’d be eligible to receive a VSIP if one were offered to you, regardless of your age and service. The VSIP is an incentive to leave government, whether by retiring or resigning. It’s up to you to decide if it would be beneficial to retire early.
