Thread: Leaving at just shy of 3 years

  1. Default Leaving at just shy of 3 years

    I am leaving civil service at 2 years and and just over 10 months. I tried to delay my new position as long as I could because I know that if I leave at 3 years, I can keep my TSP match. I intend to roll over the TSP money into an IRA. What are the chances that if I leave the money in the TSP they will let me keep the matched funds?

    None. 3 years not equal to 2 years 10 months. Hope things go well for you with the new job. You can take your personal contribs with you, at least you'll have what you put in. GL

    Talk to HR. Ask them about using sick leave and annual leave to make up the difference. Not sure if it will work, but worth a try.

    if u hold a needed position/degree/speciality etc., u should be able to get leave without pay, there is something out to stay on the books to test other positions/jobs. as been said u need to talk to HR, u need the 3 yrs also for if u ever want to come back, 3 yrs service is important for coming back.

    Valkyrie is right about needing the 3 yr tenure to have re-employment competitive opportunities on par with still-employed people looking for new gov job. As far as LWOP (leave without pay), there still needs to be a reasonable expectation that you will be returning to your gov job. I spent a year on LWOP one year while on a grad-student internship program. I got 6 months credit towards the 3-year mark. They knew I had every intention of continuing with the agency once I got out of school.

    I admit my first response did not consider combo of SL and AL, however there is that little thing about needing a supervisor to be kind, approve and turn a blind eye, since there are issues about terminal leave for retirees, so there would also be similar issues for someone intending to resign. As well as issues of conflict of interest holding an outside related job before you've officially resigned, which typically needs supervisor approval to hold an outside job while still employed.

    there are definite rules about LWOP. There are admin costs to the agency, as in they would be holding your position open while you were on LWOP, meaning they'd need to either not have the work get done for the expected duration of your absence, or have to recruit a temporary person for the duration, with that person having no longterm expectation of keeping the position and perhaps continuing to look for a longerterm position for themselves as well. Here's the rules about LWOP.
