Re-employed Annuitant (WAE) Program

A Re-employed Annuitant When Actually Employed (REA/WAE) works on an intermittent basis for the Department, filling staffing gaps or assisting with special projects. Foreign Service Officers from any agency or Civil Service retirees from the Department of State only may be appointed to these temporary positions.

The Global Registry is currently being used to express interest in the program. To be placed on the registry, annuitants or those within 2-3 months of retiring should contact HR Shared Services at HRSC@state.gov or 866-300-7419. Please keep in mind that having your name added to the registry does not guarantee or imply you will be hired, the registry is simply a searchable database.

Annuitants are encouraged to contact a Bureau Coordinator directly to network for a position. It is recommended that annuitants send an updated resume to the coordinator.

The following table describes the resources that were developed for annuitants:
