Hello,

I will change agencies at the end of the month. I am now determining when I will resign. Is there any downside to having a week or two in between jobs? Obviously I will have no salary and benefits during this time, but is there any other downside to having a break in service?

Thanks you!

I'll let HR professionals chime in, but I was told from the start of my federal career to NEVER allow more than 3 days break in service. I forgot why, but something to do with your SCD, benefits (especially FEGLI), and something else. So my advice is to not do it.

I was given 2 months of Advanced S/L when I had an operation. The reason given, Benefits & your SCD date. Yet I read in the Postal Section those who have to put off operations because their manager wont allow any time off? What gives?

There is no reason to resign. The two HRs will work out a transfer. You leave one office on Friday and report to the other on Monday. If you want a break, schedule leave either before or after the transfer.

The two HR organizations work out the details, not the employee and not the managers. Until you are sitting in the chair in the new job the old job continues, unless you resign. The current manager must release you and the current manager may delay the process by 1-2 pay periods. You do not resign. You do not give notice. There isn't a practical reason to tell the current management the new job is in the works as HR will contact the current manager requesting a release. Resigning could end the career in the federal government in the event the new job doesn't work out. Do not resign.

Never resign.

Take leave or leave without pay. If you hit 80 hrs of LWOP yiu will lose leave earned amount in your next pay check.

As Frank said you stay on losing payroll until your official transfer Sunday st the start of a PP, thrn you report to new HR fir in processing on that next work day. If thst Monday is a fed holiday you get paid that day.

If relocation is covered by gaining agency the transfer occurs before you start your move. There is a formula that says what day you should report to new HR given your driving distance.
