Frequently Asked Questions Retirement

I know that the FERCCA legislation applies to active employees, retirees, and survivors, but what about separated employees?

It does not matter if you no longer work for the Federal Government because FERCCA also applies to separated employees. As long as your retirement coverage error was in effect for more than 3 years of service after December 31, 1986, then you may benefit from FERCCA. Contact your former Federal agency's Human Resources Office to request a review of your eligibility under FERCCA.
