Q. I have 3¾ years military service and 2¼ years as a term employee.
Recently I accepted a new position with the government. I am 65. Will I be eligible for retirement after completing three-quarter years in my current position? I was covered under FERS as a term employee and in my current position.
A. No. You would need to have five years of actual FERS service to be eligible to retire. Even if you made a deposit for your active-duty military service, it wouldn’t count until you had those five years under your belt.
