Q. I am a 48-year-old FERS employee and considering resignation with almost 28 years of federal service. If I resign now (age 48), at age 60 do I submit a request to the Office of Personnel Management to collect pension high-3 (28 years of service)? If this is so, would this be considered a postponed or deferred retirement?

Q. Hello, I worked for the National Labor Relations Board (under FERS) for four years and left to work with California MTA and California Department of Justice (CalPers). Do either of those California state agencies have reciprocity with the federal government? If no, would I be able to purchase the one year left to vest in FERS?

Q. I’m retiring on 12/31/2018, and will have accrued 287 hours of annual leave; that is, over the 240 hours maximum. I’m not understanding whether I’m going to lose those hours unless I take the extra leave before the end of the year or if it is OK. How many hours will I actually get paid for in the lump sum?
