Q. When I meet my MRA, I plan to retire with 31 years of federal service. The first nine years I worked in law enforcement. How will this affect my retirement? Will I be eligible to draw 1.7 percent for the nine years and 1 percent for the rest of my federal service?
A. No, you won’t. Your entire annuity will be computed using the standard formula: .01 x your high-3 x all years and full months of service.
