Postponing retirement


Q. What is the deadline/latest into the already submitted process that a person can ask for his or her retirement date to be pushed back?

A. There is no deadline or latest date to change your mind. However, if your position is being abolished or someone has been selected to fill your position, your agency could legitimately reject your request for a delay.
