Vesting is your right to the money in your Thrift
Plan accounts. You are always 100 percent vested in the value of
your own contributions and any investment earnings on those contributions.
This includes any money you roll over or transfer to the Plan.
Employees receive 20 percent of their Employer Matching Contribution
for each year of service, becoming 100 percent vested after completing
five years of service.

If you leave the Federal Reserve and receive the value
of your Thrift Plan account, you will be treated as a new employee
for vesting purposes if you are later rehired.
However, if you left your balance in the Plan, and
are later rehired, you will keep your original hire date for vesting
service calculations. However, any previously forfeited contributions
are not restored.
