Pension for part-time federal service?


Q. I will be 62 in August 2015. I work part time as a registered nurse; I have worked 32 hours per period since 2002. Will I get a pension?

A. The only requirements to retire and receive a pension are that you be age 62 and have at least five years of service. When your annuity is computed, your years of service will be counted as full time; then your benefit will be reduced proportionately to account for your part-time service.
