    Choices available

    If the referring condition comes back at 30% or more and you are at 15 years of service; can you elect to deny the retirement and choose the severance? I understand all the benefits but looking at all options for my family right now.

    Overtaxed on Severance Pay

    Has anyone experienced this? I was given a severance pay of $24,852. I receive a payment of $15,402 today, clearly way more than the 22% they are supposed to tax. What is the timeline to getting it fixed or just getting my taxes refunded after submitting the st.clair memo

    Retirement vs severance choice

    Currently an O2E with 10 years looking at 20 or 30% dod, 80 VA. My issue is borderline at 20 or 30%, if I get 20% I would get 100k severance. I have a federal GS9 job lined up so I'm not worried about the insurance benifits, would it be better to get the retirement or the severance?
