Q. I am 53 years old, and I retired from the Navy Reserve in 2008 with 21 years of service (13 active). I have been a GS employee since 2002 and have made a deposit for the active-duty time toward my civilian retirement. I plan to retire from the federal government when I am 56. Will I still be eligible for a military reserve retirement?

Q. How does one calculate top three? Is that the amount you make annually for the last three years of your top salary? For example: .01 x $62,000 x 20 (with $62,000 being the average of one’s top 3).

Q. If I’m offered a position at a lower grade, but the same pay through pay retention (same GS pay plan), would declining it forfeit my already filed disability retirement application? Also, position would be non-law enforcement versus my current law enforcement retirement plan, so I would be giving up my enhanced 20-year law enforcement officer annuity. According to what I’ve read, I’m not required to accept a lower grade position — even if they match the pay rate.
