FERS credit for part-time hours


Q: I started working for the Postal Service in January of 1995 as a PTF clerk. Now I am a full-time employee. Under the Federal Employees Retirement System, how do my part-time hours get counted for retirement time? Over 14 years, I have between 12,000 and 13,000 hours.

A: Go to to Office of Personnel Management’s chapter on the computation for part-time employees and scroll down to Subchapter 55B, Part 55B2.
