Q. Is unused sick time included in the calculation of years of service?
Q. I am retired and receive an annuity payment ever month. I have been having real bad back problem – my disk in my back affects my walking, I had the nerve burned and shot in my back – but nothing seem to help. Do I qualify for disability insurance? I’m 72 years old. Can I receive both benefits?
Q. I am MRA +10 and want to postpone receipt of my FERS annuity until I turn 62. My agency says if I choose to “postpone” I can’t retire but have to resign and contact the Office of Personnel Management six months before my 62nd birthday. How do I “retire and postpone” instead of resign?
Q. I will retire on Jan. 4, 2019. I have 230 hours of annual leave that I want to cash out. How is this done and how much will it be? There are still two more pay periods where I will accrue some leave. Is there a form to be completed?
Q. 5 CFR 842.503 (a)(1) says that 30 years of service grants you entitlement to the special retirement supplement, yet the Office of Personnel Management denied it to me. I just left the service two years prior to minimum retirement age with 30-plus years of service.
Q. I will be 60 years of age in December 2018 with 17 years of service with the United States Fish and Wildlife Service. I have signed a Declination of Unreasonable Offer since the position will be outside commuting area, so I will be involuntarily separated. Do I qualify for severance pay and, if so, can I postpone FERS retirement for two years to receive FEHB? Are both events possible?
