Q. I am on involuntary recall as a reservist to active duty. I am also a federal employee who bought back my four years of active-duty time. Upon my return to my federal position, would I be allowed to sell back the time I was mobilized to active duty if I was getting differential of pay from my federal agency? I am also retiring from the reserve and would like to know if I could retire from my federal position with 15 years and not meet the age requirement.
A. Yes, you can make a deposit to get credit for your period of active-duty service. No, you can’t retire if you don’t meet the age and service requirements.
