The Application for Immediate Retirement SF-2801 and SF-3107 contains several sections.

Retirement packages for CSRS/FERS employees who are filing applications for Optional/Voluntary Retirement should send their retirement packages no earlier than 6 to 8 weeks before the effective retirement date to your Benefits and Retirement Specialist.
