Q. I am a CSRS employee planning to retire at the end of this year. My SCD is Sept. 8, 1975, I paid back my six years on active duty and I’ll have more than 2,087 hours of sick leave when I retire. My very first Notice of Personnel Action, effective date Sept. 8, 1981, shows me having hired on as a Career Conditional appointee, On-Call with a one-year probationary period starting from that date. Also checked is a box that says. “ SERVICE COUNTING TOWARD CAREER (OR PERMANENT) TENURE FROM 09-08-81.” I have had no break in service since that effective date.
Is there any way any of that time is not creditable or am I correct in calculating 37 years of creditable service?
A. Barring something you haven’t told me, you are correct.
