DD Form 3018 – Phased Retirement Request and Agreement
The DoD Form 3018 is a form used to sign a request and agreement for participation in the phased retirement program. This program allows eligible employees to remain part-time work while they approach retirement. The program was approved by Congress in July 2012, and the Office of Management and Budget issued rules for its implementation in 2014. Currently, less than 100 employees are participating in the program. However, the Acting DoD Under Secretary for Personnel and Readiness, Peter Levine, issued a memorandum in June that said the department will begin accepting eligible civilian employees into the program.
In order to qualify for the program, an employee must be in full employment status for the last three years, have been eligible for immediate retirement under FERS or CSRS, and have a component head’s approval. Components have the authority to limit the number of employees that can participate in the program.
