Q. I spent three years as a postal service mail handler. During the last year (2001), I became permanent employee I was a part-time FLEX before. I resigned from the Postal Service and took a private sector job. I was offered a GS position in 2007 . I have been in this position from 2007 to the present. Can I count the three years of Postal Service time toward my retirement?
A. Only service for which retirement deductions were taken from your pay would be creditable for retirement purposes.
