Q. My wife is asking for 93 percent of my total vested account balance. Does total vested account balance mean what was contributed by me over the past 12 years, or the total value of the account which includes Va contribution and growth?
A. It includes everything in your account except for Agency Automatic Contributions, which have not yet met the vesting requirement: “A participant is vested in (entitled to keep) the Agency Automatic (1%) Contribution in his or her account after completing 3 years of Federal service (2 years for most FERS employees in Congressional and certain noncareer positions).”
