Q. Federal wildland firefighters receive extra credit for their service. I was a seasonal wildland firefighter during the summers of 1960-64 in Montana and Idaho. This was before these positions were classified at the higher level. I plan to retire from Civil Service employment this year (age 71). Can I apply (and how do I?) for credit under this provision?
A. The best way to find out is to complete a copy of Standard Form 2803 (CSRS) or 3108 (FERS), available at www.opm.gov, click on Find Form(s) and send it to the address on the form.
