Temp time and special retirement supplement


Q. I am 57 with 19 years of service under FERS. I also have two years of temp time with the government. Will the temp time count in the calculation of my special retirement supplement that starts at age 60 if I do Voluntary Early Retirement Authority and Voluntary Separation Incentive Pay next year at age 58 with 20 years?

A. No. it won’t. Nondeduction service performed on or after Jan. 1, 1989, isn’t considered creditable service.
