Title 32


Q. What about Title 32 time before starting employment as a technician? (I’m 10 years part-time ANG with numerous Title 32 orders.) I am being told that my Title 32 time is not creditable for leave accrual and not eligible for buy-back. It appears there may be a Title 10 limitation for creditable “active-duty” time concerning leave accrual.

A. According to OPM: “Service performed in the militia or National Guard has never been considered military service, unless the individual was called or drafted into the actual service of the United States.” Therefore, no credit can be given for leave accrual nor may you make a deposit to get credit for that time.
