Leave accrual


Q. I did four years in the Marine Corps, got out in June 1993 and did a year in the Army National Guard, started a government job (FERS) in December 1996 and my service computation date for leave is June 1991. I just received a 20 year pin. Something seems wrong here.

A. Although you received credit for that period of active- duty service in determining your leave accrual rate, unless you have made a deposit to the civilian retirement system, you won’t receive any credit for it in your annuity computation when you retire.
