Two Months Before Retirement

Your Retirement Planning Checklist 


Submit all forms to your retirement counselor, preferably 6 to 8 weeks before your retirement date. Keep a copy for your own records. Your forms will be reviewed and acknowledged, and any missing items will be requested from you. 


If you have not already done so, inform your supervisor of your retirement date, and ask your supervisor to submit an SF-52, Request for Personnel Action, to Human Resources.


If you are covered by the Federal Employees Dental and Vision Insurance Program (FEDVIP), call BENEFEDS at 1-877-888-FEDS (1-877-888-3337), to advise them of your retirement date and to ensure a smooth transition of your deductions from your salary to your annuity check.
