Military retirees seeking to enter civil service in the Department of Defense (DoD) now require a waiver if they are within 180 days following their official date of retirement. However, personnel who fall under a special salary rate table are exempt. This policy applies to all non-appropriated and appropriated fund civilian positions in the competitive and excepted service, senior executive service and senior level positions, and scientific and professional positions. The policy also includes all permanent, temporary, term, part-time, flexible and intermittent positions. For more information, select 'Any' from the dropdown menu on myPers and search '180 day.'
