Frequently Asked Questions Pay & Leave

May we pay a retention incentive to an employee who is likely to leave because of retirement?

Yes. As long as all other conditions are met, an agency may pay a retention incentive if it makes a determination that the employee would be likely to leave the Federal service for any reason in the absence of a retention incentive.
