Final Week

Your Retirement Planning Checklist 


Complete any necessary exit paperwork with your supervisor or administrative contact.


Ask your timekeeper to prepare the AD-581, Lump Sum Leave or Compensatory Time Payments, and submit it to Human Resources the week after you have retired so that you are paid for your unused annual leave without delay. If there are no discrepancies or indebtedness, you should be paid for your unused annual within 4 to 6 weeks following your retirement date.


When your retirement application has been processed by Human Resources, you will receive a package of information regarding the transition from being a Federal employee to becoming an annuitant serviced by the Office of Personnel Management (OPM).

(For employees of USDA Marketing and Regulatory Programs and the Merit Systems Protection Board)
