Ok, you can if you want to, but it will cost you roughly $350 per year versus waiting until 2014 to retire.
Fedweek produced a somewhat tongue-in-cheek article calling the 2010 National Defense Authorization Act the ‘No FERS Employee Retires in 2013 Act’.
For those who recall, the 2010 NDAA restored sick leave parity between the FERS and CSRS systems, phasing in full sick leave credit for FERS participants in 2014.
Would you gut it out an additional year just for a $350 per year annuity check? I don’t think so, but a FERS employees ‘on the fence’ in December of 2013 might wait until January of 2014 to retire.
We’ll have to wait and see.
