from Federal Civil Service? On

30 March 1994, the President signed into law, the Federal Workforce Restructuring Act (FWRA) of 1994 (PL 103-226), which authorized government-wide Voluntary Separation Incentive Pay (VSIP) programs (buyouts) to employees who agree to resign or retire from government service. The following information provides guidance on the provisions which impact DOD:®

1. If a DOD incentive taker is seeking re-employment within the Department of the Navy (DON) and separated before 30 March 1994, they have already completed the 12 month requirement whereby all incentive pay must be repaid to the activity, if re-employed.®

2. If a DOD incentive taker is seeking re-employment within the DON and separated

after 30 March 1994, he/she must repay the incentive in full if they are rehired within 5 years of separation. This repayment includes any moneys paid by the activity for the Internal Revenue Service, Federal Employees Retirement System (FERS), Social Security Benefit, Medicare, etc.
