Early COS

Those who did this (up to 30 days before scheduled COS), was there any penalty to your NCE, pay or status?

None for me.

I should note that I extended a 3rd year and then changed my COS date back by 29 days from the new date, but from my understanding so long as you get the form filled out for a proper change of COS date, you still actually COS. That's what drives the determination for things like NCE status etc.

You're RA will reflect the number of months (and pro-rated days) you are a volunteer, regardless of how you left.

RA? Thanks

I am sorry. I read it as, "you are" RA instead of 'your RA' so my mind went in a totally different direction. Thanks.

Mentioned this in the other thread...but I left a week or so early (along with a couple other volunteers) for a CoS trip.

We had no issues leaving up to 30 days early and it was considered the same as any other CoS with no impact on anything.  Beyond 30 days we needed to get special permission from the Country Director, but as long as you had that permission you received the full benefits for your time and the "RPCV" title without penalty.
