Taking annual leave prior to retirement

However, in the government employee book, it says I can buy back up to all of my active service as long as I am not collecting my military retirement. So if I am hired tomorrow, while on terminal…

I previously put in for another position closer to home and now may be getting accepted for this new civilian job.
