Not sure if it varies by office, but at OHO it is 12 or more hours a week (available every week year round in my experience—can work ot during week or weekend from home until you hit cap on hours

Also there may be a rule that you can’t make over a certain amount of money a year (something like can’t exceed gs 15 last step or ses salary limit-not sure

Some folks decision writers pull down in excess of 130-140k a year with the ot

In my office it is available daily- at least 2 hours, and on weekends in 4-hour intervals up to 18 hours weekly. I think you are eligible once you are at production, so if you are meeting your DWPI numbers at 7 months, you should be able to start then. I would say it is not hugely popular in my office, but to be fair I don’t think many people knew that weekday overtime was available everyday until a few weeks ago, so that might very well be changing. We also had issues for a while where they were assigning unfavorable cases, which turned people off because many people didn’t want to do have to do 8-10 hours of OT to finish a case in a week.
