Snag in the process
Well, there may be a little snag in Cynthia’s retirement process. Bill said in a comment after a blog a few weeks back, “make sure the paperwork is in.” There’s a chance she might have to work just a little longer than June 5, because she’s put in for a “disability retirement” and it may take some extra time for the paperwork to go through OPM ( ). But, only for a SHORT time. She said she may have to consider taking leave without pay if the decision doesn’t happen soon. But the paperwork is in the OPM, according to a letter she received this week. Either way, she knows she has my support on that matter. Of course, if she does have to take leave without pay the retirement will be retroactive to her last day actually worked when the disability goes through. If it is denied, which she doesn’t believe will happen, she will begin her retirement the day she gets the decision. Either way, it shouldn’t be long now.
