Benefits Guidebook for Separating Federal Employees

It outlines policies, procedures, and processes relating to annual and sick leave balances, continuing health and life insurance coverage, and retirement contributions. It includes a review of the Thrift Savings Plan withdrawal options, an overview of Social Security benefits, eligibility requirements for severance pay and basic information on how to apply for unemployment compensation. Also, it provides information on what happens to these benefits when an employee returns to Federal employment.
