Q: Is there a program that allows a federal employee to withdraw from their government annuity early?
A: There are two scenarios:
- You quit and pull your contributions out. Not recommended as you will have no entitlement to an annuity later.
- You are already eligible to retire and you’ve been diagnosed with a condition that will result in your death in 9 months or less. Then you can pull your contributions out.
