Retirement Packages and Information:


Please note: As of Sunday, May 27, 2018, the Department of Commerce’s Enterprise Services Organization is your provider for most Payroll and Benefits services. You can access and manage these services through the Enterprise Services Portal (https://EnterpriseServices.service-now.com/ES/ ).

Should you require assistance with Payroll and Benefits, you can submit a help ticket through the portal, or you can reach out to the Enterprise Services Contact Center by phone (1.888.316.2285) or email (EnterpriseServices@doc.gov).

The retirement application and related forms have important information. Make sure you read this information carefully before filling out the forms. The Application for Immediate Retirement SF-2801 and SF-3107 contains several sections. The Benefits and Retirement Specialist will complete the Certified Summary of Federal Service SF-2801-1 and SF-3107-1 and send it to you via email. You will need to review and sign this form.

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 Retirement Specialist.

When the exact retirement date is decided, your office should initiate your retirement via the Manager Self Service in HR Connect and approved by the appropriate authority. It will be routed to the Benefits and Retirement Branch for review and submission to Accenture for processing.

Retirement packages are located in the following link: Retirement Packages

Once your retirement forms have been completed on-line, print, sign and date. It is important to make a copy of all forms for your records. Mail the completed original forms to your Retirement Specialist.

The forms below are required by all federal employees who leave federal employment.

You will need to complete a Memorandum for Lump Sum Annual Leave Income Tax Deduction and give to your office. You must also request that your office complete a CD-126 Clearance Form, CD-527 Leave Audit and CD-529 Lump Sum Leave and Compensatory Time Payments Form before you retire. Your office should send these documents, along with the Memorandum for Lump Sum Annual Leave Income Tax Deduction, directly to your Retirement Specialist. The Specialist is responsible for processing your lump-sum leave payment.
