COVID-19 Update
(Posted 03-17-2020)

Due to the increasing spread of the corona virus and in an abundance of caution, we have deemed it a sensible precaution to postpone the Benefit Training until further notice (see postponements below).

We will continue to monitor guidance from the CDC and WHO to make informed and appropriate actions to ensure the safety of the agency employees and that of our Instructors.

There will be no need to re-enroll.  Once the seminars are back on the schedule, we will notify you directly.  

 

If you have any questions you were hoping to get answers for during the training,  please send them to us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for a prompt response.

 

Thank you for your understanding and support.  Be well.

National Defense Authorization Act of 2010
Important Retirement Changes

On October 28, 2009, President Obama signed the National Defense Authorization Act of 2010. The Act contains several important retirement changes including:

Credit for sick leave in the computation of FERS annuities is effective at 50% immediately and 100% in 2014.(For those employees that are retiring very soon, HR offices should provide the sick leave balance in the retirement package. OPM will make the final calculations.)

Provision allowing former federal employees under the FERS who withdrew their contributions to the retirement trust fund, thereby waiving retirement credit for those years of service, to redeposit their earlier contributions, plus interest, upon reemployment with the federal government is effective immediately.

A change in CSRS part-time computation (going to a single deemed high-3) is effective immediately.

A change of the ending date for periods of service under CSRS that can be redeposited by actuarial reduction (instead of for separations prior to 10/1/90 it will be for separations prior to 3/1/91) is effective immediately.

The provisions allowing certain previously non-creditable D.C. Government employment to be creditable for title but not annuity computation are effective immediately.

More information can be provided by OPM.
