Voluntary Early Retirement (VER) information

The Jane Doe VER Kit is an example of what eligible employees will receive this week.

The NALC VER Retirement Counseling Settlement in 2013 is important because VER retirement counseling before the irrevocable date is difficult to get. Retirement counseling hasn’t improved since then. In normal times it takes 45 days to get an appointment. In a VER, it takes even longer.

    The Jane Doe VER Kit is identical to the mailed version, except for one glaring discrepancy: As the subject line on pg.1 says, this is the “2018 Clerk/Mailhandler VER”. Likewise, on stated (“HRSSC PAGE”) pg.23 (about FEHB info), the OPM box giving the authority info has two entry lines, one for clerks and one for mailhandlers. The Jane Doe kit, however, has only one entry line, for “EAS, Pay Band PCES”, and the line length and font(?) for pp.23–25 are different! Is this actually part of the same VER, or something else? In terms of replication, this section throws off the rest of the file (regarding stated paging). P=(
