Q. I was hired May 1, 1984, under the former federal retirement system. On Jan. 1, 1987, I was transferred into FERS. Is my service between from May 1, 1984, to Dec. 31, 1987 still considered to be part of my FERS-covered service?

A. Yes. Because you were first hired after Dec. 31, 1983, your Interim service was automatically converted to FERS service when it became effective on Jan. 1, 1987.
