Military buyback

0

Q. I am a newer federal employee with nine years active duty in the Marine Corps. I intend on buying back my military time toward retirement. If I choose to leave to federal service before retiring, can I request a refund of the money paid back for my military service?  Also, I understand that I have up to two years to pay this amount off interest free. If I were to wait, say, six or seven years and pay a lump sum of the amount instead of installments, would I be charged any sort of interest?

Social Security benefit

Q. I have 30 years in as a letter carrier, but I’m only 55. Will I be eligible to receive Social Security at this age and if so how much? Also, can I withdraw money from my TSP before 59 and a half to pay off my mortgage without the early withdrawal penalty?

Restored sick leave

Special retirement supplement

Q. I am a postal employee under FERS.  I am 58 years old and will have 29 years 11 months and two weeks when I retire, but with my four years of service I bought back and sick leave I will have 34 and a half years for my annuity. My question, being two weeks short of 30 years’ service, will I receive the SRS? One person from HR told me that I won’t because you need 30 years and they go by years and don’t round up. Another person from HR said I will get it and they do round up to give me the 30 years.
