Q. I am age 66 in a Level 13 office as postmaster. My retirement date on Form 50 is Jan. 21, 2014, with 20 years of service. If I do nothing, I will be separated Sept. 30, 2014, with no problems. I don’t want to be offered a position which I won’t take and leave the post office with nothing.

Q. I am a FERS employee and plan to retire Jan. 11, 2014. Since the leave year ends on the 11th, I know I will be paid for the 240 hours of carryover leave I have. I currently also have 178 hours of use-or-lose leave. If I don’t use any more use-or-lose leave, will I get paid for the 178 hours in addition to the 240?
Q. I will be 59½ on July 20, 2014. I have 1,102 sick leave hours. Can I retire on that date and simply use the sick leave? In other words, by Jan. 20, 2015, when I turn 60, I will have a zero balance? I am not interested in adding the sick leave to my annuity, but want to leave early at 59½ instead of 60.
Q. My projected CSRS creditable service is 37 years, five months and 12 days based on my projected retirement date of Jan. 2, 2014. Would it be to my advantage to work an additional 18 days or so to get to six months instead of five months?
Q. As you know, as of the first of next year, FERS people get 100 percent of their unused sick leave, putting us on same footing as CSRS. Problem is, we’re not CSRS, so we don’t know how they get that. We hear it’s tacked on to end of service, but then we hear retirement date is retirement date, not that plus unused sick leave. So, do we get a lump sum or just keep getting paid for that time as if we were still here?
Q. I am planning on retiring from CSRS at the end of this year. I will be 56 years old and have a little more than 32 years of government service. 1. I currently show 150 hours of use-or-lose annual leave on my last pay stub. If I go into the end of the year and retire with use-or-lose leave on the books, will I get paid for it? Or do I need to burn up the use-or-lose leave before I retire? 2. As I look at the 2013 calendar, to retire at the true end of the payroll year,…
Q. If I retire Jan 3, 2014, I could have 60 hours of use-or-lose annual leave. Will I get paid for the 60 hours of use-or-lose leave plus the 240 carryover for a total of 300 hours? I have 42 years in CSRS and 3,629 hours of unused sick leave.
Q. I would like to know which date is better for retirement: Jan 3, 2014, or Jan 10, 2014. I am a CSRS employee who will have 32 years and three months of federal service, and four years and four months of military service. I will have accrued 448 hours of annual leave and want to know which date to retire so that I won’t lose any.
Q. I am retiring Sept. 30. I have been continuously employed by the federal government since Sept. 21, 1981. I first worked for the Department of the Interior from Sept. 21, 1981, to Feb. 27, 1987. I was under FICA from Sept. 21, 1981, to Oct. 29, 1983, after which time I was covered under CSRS. I became employed by the Justice Department (law enforcement 1811) on March 1, 1987. I transferred to FERS on Jan. 3, 1999. I understand that service is calculated differently for service from Sept. 21, 1981, to Sept. 30, 1982, and Oct. 1, 1982, to…
Q. I am CSRS and considering a retirement date of Oct. 31. But I want to check with you if a few assumptions that I am making are valid. First, Oct. 31 is the second Thursday in the pay period, and we work a compressed 5/4/9 schedule, where the second Friday in a pay period is a regular day off. Will retirement on Thursday, Oct. 31 complete the pay period for me and allow me to accrue the annual and sick leave for that pay period, and the full month of November retirement pay? Second, I am hoping to take…
