Q: I retired from the Army after 21 years as a Chief Warrant Officer 2, which was a reserve commission; the component I retired from was United States Army Reserve (USAR) and I currently receive a retirement pension/pay. I am currently a government employee. If I buy back my military time and apply it to my civilian time (FERS), do I forfeit my military retirement pay? I believe I am receiving reserve retired pay based on my discussion with DFAS.
A: If you are receiving reserve retired pay and make a deposit for any periods of active duty service, it will have no affect on your reserve retired pay.
