Transfer retirement from NAF to FERS


Q. I transferred from NAF to FERS in 2001. When I accepted the new position I was assured that my NAF retirement would be transferred to FERS. I am now being told that it was not and that I can only get a refund of my FERS contributions. The fact that I was misled at the time of my resignation does not bear any weight in the final decision/appeal?

A. You can always appeal that decision; however, because the law is clear, the odds of your being successful are slim.
