FDIC Telework Options

Last Updated: April 28, 2022

Traditional Telework:

  • The selectee may telework on a recurring or ad hoc basis but will be regularly out of the office due to telework and/or a compressed work schedule 5 days or less per pay period.
  • The selectee’s duty station is an FDIC office, (or other work location, such as a financial institution) unless telework has been approved by the selectee’s supervisor.
  • Locality pay will be determined by location of duty station, not the selectee’s residence.
  • The selectee’s residence must be in the contiguous United States.

Expanded Telework (ETW):

  • The selectee will telework on a recurring basis and will be authorized to be regularly out of the office due to telework and/or a CWS more than 5 days per pay period.
  • Locality pay will be based on the location of the duty station, not the selectee’s residence.
  • The selectee’s duty station is an FDIC office.
  • The selectee may also choose to work in the office at any time.
  • The selectee will work in the office (or other work location, such as a financial institution) unless telework has been approved by the selectee’s supervisor.
  • The selectee’s residence must be in the contiguous United States.

Home Based Option (HBO):

  • The selectee will be authorized to work at home unless the selectee is otherwise directed to report to the duty station or other work location (e.g., a financial institution) due to mission, staffing, and workload requirements (e.g., onsite examination, meetings in the office, training, collaborative team activities). The selectee may also choose to work in the office at any time.
  • The selectee is not required to live within a certain proximity of the selectee’s duty station; however, the selectee must be able to timely report to the selectee’s duty station when directed to do so. Travel expenses and time spent in travel between the selectee’s home and duty station will not be reimbursed or compensated.
  • The selectee’s duty station is an FDIC office. Locality pay will be based on the location of the duty station, not the selectee’s residence.

Remote Work Option (RWO):

  • The selectee’s duty station is the selectee’s primary residence. Locality pay will be based on the location of the selectee’s primary residence.
  • The selectee will work at home unless the selectee is otherwise directed to report to the duty station or other work location. It will be rare that the selectee is directed to report to a particular office.
  • When RWO selectees are required to travel for training or other work-related reasons, they will be in an official travel status and will be compensated for travel time and expenses to and from their residence in accordance with established policies. Actual salary will be determined upon the location of the selectee and the applicable locality pay.
  • The selectee’s residence must be in the continental United States.
