FERS law enforcement job and military buyback


Q. I have been a FERS 6c employee for eight years. I have 12 years of active-duty military service. I have already put in two weeks’ notice to leave my 6c job but would like to buy back my military time to increase my deferred annuity. Do I have to buy back the military time before my employment terminates?

A. Yes.
