Q: I am a firefighter and I spent 4.5 years as GS-7 —at least three of that in a primary position. I have resigned to move to another state with my spouse. If I get back into an 0081 position, does the three years start over and have to be completed again before entering into a secondary position to remain in the special retirement?
A: No, it doesn’t. You would be able to pick up where you left off.
