Leaving federal service
I'm a federal employee under the Civil Service Retirement System with more than 24 years of service and more than a year of accumulated sick leave. I will soon turn age 55 and have been offered an attractive job in the private sector. I am not eligible for an "early out." What benefits would I retain in case I decide to leave federal service? What would my retirement benefit be, and when would it begin? Is there a penalty involved? Would my surviving spouse retain any death benefits from my federal employment?
