Q: I retired from the Air Force in November 2005 with 20 years of time. In August 2006 I started working as a federal employee. I submitted paperwork to receive credit for my active duty time in a recognized war zone and received 14 months, which pushed my EOD date back to May 2005. I know this adjusted my credit for leave, but will my start date be based off my actual EOD or the adjusted EOD? I also plan on buying back my military time before retiring.
A: It will only be adjusted for retirement purposes if you complete a deposit for all your active duty military service and, at retirement, waive your military retired pay.
