Partial military buyback?


Q: Can a retired military member elect to buy back only a portion of his military time?

A: If your active-duty service was continuous, the answer is no. If you were on active duty during separate, distinct periods of time, you can chose the period (or periods) of time for which you want to make a deposit.
