Military buyback and annual leave accrual


Q. Since being employed with the federal government, I have been deployed twice in the National Guard. I have bought back all the military service. What effect does buying the military service time back have on the service computation date for annual leave accrual?

A. Your accrual rate would be the same as if you had worked continuously in your civilian position.
