Kathleen Sebelius’ farewell speech might have been missing a page, but her copy of the Office of Personnel Management’s retirement manual certainly wasn’t absent any critical information.

From the Daily Caller:

Turns out, there may be a financial incentive for the former Kansas governor to take her time getting out of Washington.

Next week, Sebelius becomes eligible to receive a government pension and continue certain taxpayer-funded health-care benefits when she hits her five-year employment mark with the federal government, Office of Personnel Management (OPM) policy indicates.

Under OPM rules, Sebelius, who was sworn into office on April 28, 2009, would be eligible to receive these benefits after completing five years of continuous service in the federal government.

In a world where Lois Lerner continues to be paid, news that taxpayers will probably be sending Kathleen Sebelius checks for the rest of her life is hardly surprising:

According to the Daily Caller, in just a few days Sebelius will qualify for a $10,000 per year pension, plus some nice health care perks — for life. Members of Congress qualify for the same deal. Hey, all employers offer departing employees ten grand a year after just five years of service, don’t they? Especially after spearheading hugely expensive disasters.

Can we at least force her to register for the benefits through HealthCare.gov?
