Q. I worked for the National Labor Relations Board (FERS) for four years and left to work with California MTA and California Department of Justice (CalPers). Do either of those California state agencies have reciprocity with the federal government? If no, would I be able to purchase the 1 year left to vest in FERS?
A. There is no reciprocity with the federal government nor can you make a deposit to get credit for that year to vest in FERS.
