FERS retirement and partial service


Q. Under CSRS retirement, a person gets credit for each month of service. Whenever I look at FERS information it talks only of years of service.  Does a person get credit for partial years of service in FERS?

A. Both retirement systems operate the same way. Annuity computations are based on formulas that include years and full months of service.

  1. Your annuity would be based on all your years and full months of service. Any days that didn’t add up to a full month would be discarded.
