What must an agency do if it decides to reduce or terminate a retention incentive when no service agreement is required?

If an agency reduces or terminates a retention incentive when no service agreement is required, the agency must notify the employee in writing. The employee is entitled to receive any scheduled retention incentive payments through the end of the pay period in which the written notice is provided or until the date of separation, if sooner. (See 5 CFR 575.311(h).)
