    Guys I have a question. I just realized that I applied for Northeast region instead of Central East for NY/NJ area. I'm quite upset.

    Would this push me back? should I wait until after the Poly to change it? Who do I call?

    What states fall under Northeast anyways?
    Help.
    Pretty much New York(not including nyc), vermont, Maine, New Hampshire

          This was my original question. What is the mandatory retirement contribution before the optional contributions?

            New hires pay 3.1% of their salary as FERS retirement contributions, as a rule of thumb.

              They will be considered "essential" and expected to continue working. Last shutdown after budget was resolved (?) we received a retro check...

                Thanks, figured it was around 3%. Seems to be the going rate in public service right now.

                    I'm pretty sure it would push you back. You'd have to reapply and most of your stuff would transfer over but reapplying is the only way for u to change Geos unless they miraculously offer u what u want but that's a risk u take

                      Called MHC and see if they let you change your geo. I doubt it but its worth a try but chances youre going to have to reapply for central east

                            I'm actually pretty confident, I'm not going in there trying to hide any secrets just going to put it all on the table. If I fail it won't be because I tried to hide anything.

                                I understand I'm just nervous because confidence doesn't seem to play a part in these polygraphs. I've known people to fail because their "breathing was too controlled" meaning they were calm and confident.
