Extension of the Voluntary Retirement Incentive Program- Earnings and Account Code Usage
On August 31, 2011, the Voluntary Retirement Incentive Program (VRIP) was extended through October 31, 2011. As a result of the extension, agencies should also note the extended use of the new earnings and account codes established in SHARP to administer the VRIP.
Pursuant to the completion of the Voluntary Retirement Incentive Program, the new earnings and account codes should now no longer be used for payroll processing after the on-cycle is confirmed for the pay period beginning October 30, 2011 through November 12, 2011 paid November 23, 2011.
