National Guard retirement pay


Q. I retired from the Air National Guard. I currently am working for the Postal Service and plan to retire at age 56. I participated in the military buyback program and paid for the 15 years that I served while I was on active duty. Will this affect my ANG retirement pay once I reach the age of 60?

A. No. it won’t.
