The process takes some planning! Retirees are encouraged to participate in Transition activities as early as 24 months before their planned retirement (you are required to complete the program NLT 365 days prior to retirement date). To get started, schedule your Initial Transition Counseling. (Note: It does not commit you to retiring or a retirement date if you change your mind).
Take a look at the recommended timeline to plan it all out. See below for more information.
