Q. I resigned from federal service with 20 years as a WG-12 (age 45). I also had 26 years military (four active and 16 Guard). I was told that I could apply for a deferred retirement. Where can I find a calculator to see what my retirement would be when I reach age 62?
A. Your annuity would be calculated as if you had retired on the day you resigned from the government. Here’s the formula: .01 x the average of your highest three consecutive years of basic pay x your years and full months of service. Note: Unless you made a deposit to get credit for your active duty service, it wouldn’t be included in the computation of your annuity.
