Service computation date


Q. I am a full-time term federal employee. I had a service computation date of Feb. 5, 2005. It was recently changed to June 4, 2002, due to military service. Will this new SCD help when computing my FERS retirement plan as far as years? I have only contributed to FERS since 2005, when I became a scheduled full-time term employee.

A. It will only affect your annual leave accrual rate. It won’t have any effect on your retirement eligibility or in your annuity computation unless you make a deposit for that period of active-duty service.
