However, credit for military retirees is generally limited to those who retired on the basis of a combat disability or for service performed during a war. (By…

Q. I am being separated by a RIF at four years and 11 months of creditable civil service. I am 61 years old. Can I use accrued annual leave to reach five years of “service” and thereby qualify for an annuity when I reach 62?
