I was hired as a title 5 VA employee 8 years ago. Over the years, I completed another degree and can be converted (same work duties) to a Hybrid 38. Is there any benefit to change from title 5 to a hybrid 38?

I believe under title 38, generally, market pay supplement replaces any kind of incentives (retention, contracts, etc.); so that the total of base pay, locality adjustment and the market pay counts as "annual" pay for "adjusted basic pay for retirement purposes".
So that is the advantage.
And the GS designation changes to GP.

The title 38 pay is r-evaluated every 2 yrs and may go up and down based on accomplishments and market pay factors.

hybrid 38 is different from 38. a lot of the title 5 provisions remain, such as GS remaining GS and pay setting, etc. some 38 provisions are incorporated such as step increases for accomplishments. leave calculations do not change.

The things I would also consider are the cons for switching. ie Do you retain all your Title 5 protections in a Hybrid-38 position?

I remember when we were converted (one of the first series to be converted years ago) part-time folks were given the option to change. I don't know if this is still true or not but it was in conjunction with a discussion that some title 5 protections would be lost. I can't remember what they were or if they even still hold but it is certainly worth looking into.
