RETIREMENT ACT AMENDED
On January 24, 1942, the retirement act covering employees in the classified
civil service was amended and there are given below the changes of interest to
Bureau employees:
1. Eliminates the 62 and 65 year retirement age groups and provides for auto-
matic separation at 70 after 15 years of service for all classes of employees.
2. Provides that the employee may upon his own option retire after reaching at
least age 60 and having at least 30 years of service or after reaching at least age
62 and having at least 15 years of service; and that. head of department may
request retirement of employee under the above limitations of age and service,
with right of appeal and hearing on the part of employee before the Civil Service
Commission, if the employee by reason of a disqualification is unable to perform
satisfactorily and efficiently the duties of his position or some other position of the
same grade or class as that occupied by the employee and to which he could
be assigned.
3. Provides that an employee may voluntarily retire after reaching age 55 and
having at least 30 years of service with reduced annuity having a value of the
present, worth of the deferred annuity at. age 60.
4. The coverage of the act is extended so that all federally-controlled employees
of the Bureau will be included, except that, the President. may exclude any officer
or employee or group of officers or employees in the executive branch of the service
whose tenure of office is intermittent or of uncertain duration.
5. The old method of computing annuities remains unchanged, including the
provision as to minimum annuity. However, there is a further provision to the
effect that. the total annuity paid shall not be less than an amount equal to the
average annual basic salary received by the employee during any five consecutive
years of allowable service at the option of the employee, multiplied by the number
of years of service, not exceeding 35, and divided by 70. The new proviso is
merely supplementary to and does not change any of the present methods of
computing annuities and will in no case reduce the annuity otherwise payable.
Also this proviso is not retroactive so as to cover employees separated prior to
its effective date, January 24, 1942.
6. Employees who serve for a total period of not less than five years and become
separated from the service on or after January 24, 1942, are not entitled to a refund
of deductions made on and after that date, but the amount to the credit of the
employee at the clo(,e of January 23, 1942, will be refunded on application. All








1942] SERVICE ANID REGULATORY A.NNOUNCEE'IENTS 15

amounts not refunded will remain to the credit of the employee and bear interest
at 3 percent compounded on June 30 of each year until age 62, when an annuity
will be paid. Such annuity will consist of (a) $30 for each year of service not
exceeding 30 (but not in excess of 4 of the average annual basic salary received
by the employee during any five consecutive years of allowable service nor less
than an amount equal to the employee's purchasable annuity as indicated in (b)
below) plus (b) the amount of annuity purchasable with the sum to the credit of
the employee's individual account with interest.
7. Effective July 1, 1942, the retirement deductions are increased from 3t; to
5 percent of the employee's basic salary. Interest on such deductions will con-
tinue at 4 percent per annum compounded on June 30 of each year.
WITHIN-GRADE SALARY ADVANCEMENTS
Within-grade promotions of all graded employees of the Bureau compensated
on a per annum basis are now governed by a uniform plan.
Advancement is contingent upon a current efficiency rating of "Good" or better,
but no employee will be advanced beyond the middle rate of the grade unless his
current efficiency rating is "Very Good" or "Excellent". If an employee is
promoted in grade and receives a salary increase not less than one step in his old
grade, the new period of service will date from the time of the change in grade.
For employees in grades in which the salary steps are $60 or $100, promotions
will be effective at the beginning of the quarter following the completion of each
18 months of service until the maximum of the grade is reached.
For employees in grades in which the salary steps are $200 the same conditions
prevail except that the period of service is 30 month-" instead of 18 months.
The first within-grade promotions under the uniform plan were effective on
October 1, 1941.
POLITICAL ACTIVITY
Copies of Personnel Circular No. 84 (Revision I) dated February 12, 1942,
dealing with political activity have been sent to all Washington offices of the
Bureau and to field stations in sufficient quantity so that distribution may be
made to each employee who receives copies of Service and Regulatory Announce-
ments. Copies should also be on file in all Washington offices and in each field
office for reference purposes.
