Q. I am retired 23 years from the military, working now as GS and did not buy back time. By the time I am eligible for full retirement at 67, I will have about 15 years in FERS. Am I entitled to military, FERS and Social Security separate payments?
A. Yes, you’d be entitled to your active-duty military retirement, a FERS annuity based on your actual years of FERS service and a Social Security benefit based on all your Social Security-covered employment.
