    What are career and length of service certificates?

    Career Service Certificates recognize various milestones in an employee's Federal Career. Retirement Certificates recognize an employment career completed in the Federal Service. Available since 1988, these certificates provide a form of honorary recognition and may be presented to employees alone or in combination with other career service and retirement emblems or pins as they complete these significant milestones or retire. An agency may obtain these certificates by riding OPM's printing requisition and placing an order through the agency's printing officer. These certificates are not stocked by the Government Printing Office, so riding OPM's printing requisition is the only way to obtain them. Agencies should check with their printing officer for specific details on how to place orders.
