Browsing: Disability retirement

Q. I retired from the Air Force with 25 years of service and am collecting an active duty (Title 10) military pension. I also have a service-connected Veterans Affairs disability for time served in Iraq. Currently, I am working for the U.S. Postal Service and contributing toward a FERS retirement. Can I buy back my active duty time for my FERS retirement? If so, can collect two pensions: FERS and Title 10?

Q. I worked for the U.S. Air Force CSRS for many years and retired with a disability due to a car accident. I do receive a CSRS pension and a small Social Security pension. My husband worked for USAF active duty and retired after 30 years, and he passed away last month. He was receiving Social Security and an AF retirement check. The Social Security Administration says I will not get any of his Social Security, only my own small pension, because I receive a CSRS pension. Is this right and, if so, why?
