DAA and retirement


Q: Earlier in my federal career I worked part time (1989-1998), but I am now on a full-time schedule. Does the National Defense Authorization Act of 2010 provision covering the calculation of annuity components apply only to employees who retire as a part-time employee or does it cover anyone who worked a part-time work schedule on or after April 7, 1986?

A: The Defense Authorization Act of 2010 only changed the way the annuities are calculated for CSRS employees with a period or periods of part-time service or FERS employees with a CSRS component in their annuities. Now they are calculated in the same way as that service has always been calculated for FERS employees.
