FERS credit


Q. Can l get FERS retirement credit (without buyin) for my 20 years (regular retirement) of military service? I was awarded 100 percent VA service connection five years after military retirement. I have 12 years of FERS time and 10 percent of my VA disability is combat related.

A. No, you’d have to make a deposit to the civilian retirement fund to get credit for that time.
