Q. If a person is furloughed, does time in furlough status count toward retirement? For instance, in the current iteration, the proposal is furlough people for 30 days. I reach 20 years on Aug. 19. If I am furloughed for 30 days, will that move the 20 years mark back 30 days, too?
A. No, it won’t. To affect your service credit, the furlough would have to exceed six months in a calendar year.
