Chapter 8. Waiver of Repayment
8.1 Repayment may be wholly or partially waived at the discretion of NASA if recovery would not be in the public interest or would be against equity and good conscience. In making this determination, the NASA will take into account consistency, fairness, and the cost to the taxpayer of recovering monies owed to the government. A waiver may be considered, but is not automatic, when an employee accepts a position in another Federal Agency or NASA Center.
8.2 When an employee is separated by death or disability retirement, or is unable to continuing working because of disability evidenced by acceptable medical documentation, repayment is automatically waived.
