Q: I have a military pension that just began Nov. 1 for my 20 years in the National Guard. How will this pension affect my CSRS pension from the U.S. Postal Service after 33 years of service?
A: It won’t affect your CSRS annuity in any way unless your retired pay from the National Guard includes any periods of active-duty service for which you haven’t made a deposit to the civilian retirement system. If it does, those years of active duty service for which you haven’t paid a deposit will be eliminated at age 62 , if you are retired, or when you retire, if after age 62, and your annuity recomputed without them.
