Q. I’m currently in a secondary 1811 position and will be transferring to a new position within the same organization that is not secondary, but primary in classification. I have no previous primary service. I would like to change to primary to receive the higher retirement multiple. Can this be done?
A. First go to www.opm.gov/retire/pubs/handbook/C046.pdf and read Subpart 46B3.2; then, after talking with your supervisor, visit your personnel office.
