Should you Leave Federal Service Early?
Should you leave Federal Service before you’re eligible for full retirement? I know you’re thinking about it. 😉
There are different forms of “early” retirement from Federal service – Some with an immediate pension, some with a postponed pension, and some with a reduced pension.
But, leaving early has a price tag. You will be walking away from some valuable benefits – they don’t call them “golden handcuffs” for nothing!
Join me as we discuss the following forms of early separation and the pros & cons of each:
- Separating before you’re eligible for an immediate pension
- MRA + 10 Retirement
- VERA & VSIP (aka. Early Outs and Buyouts)
