Deferred retirement


Q. I’m a federal law enforcement officer with 16 years covered and three years federal service not covered. If I decide to take a deferred retirement will I still get the enhanced 1.7 x the number of years x my high three and 1 x the number of non-law enforcement years X my high-3? I also bought back 13 years of military service. How will those years be added?

Annuity computation


Q. I’m a law enforcement officer with 16 years federal service. I also have three years federal service (non-LEO).  I’m looking at deferred retirement next year with 20 years of federal service and being able to draw my retirement at age 60, I’m currently 52. According to all I have read, the following would be how I calculate the income. Base pay  80,000 X 17years X 1.7 for law enforcement. Base pay 80,000 X 3 years X 1 for non-law enforcement federal service. I have bought back 13 years prior military service but not sure where this counts. Could you…

Deferred annuity


Q. I worked as a full-time carrier from 1988-1996. I recently heard that I am vested and will receive some money when I’m in my 60s. Is that true? I also had almost 8 years of sick leave saved up. Does that count for anything? I know that some federal agencies receive medical insurance if they paid for it for 5 years — Is the USPS one of those agencies?

Deferred vs. postponed retirement


Q. I am a FERS (non-LEO) employee and plan to leave government service at age 50 with 26 years of service. Do I elect to defer or postpone my retirement? At what age do I draw from my retirement; 56, 60 or 62? At what age would I qualify for life insurance to be included again?

I’m a DoD employee, age 52 3/4 years with 28 1/4 years of service. My goal is to retire when I reach 30 years of service, but I’ll still be almost two years short of my MRA, and therein lies the rub. I’ve done a fair bit of research, but try as I might, I cannot find an avenue for retirement before my 56th birthday that does not…

Federal retirement


Q. I spent eight years active duty in the Air Force as a physician in the late 1990s. I would like to end my career practicing at the VA. I am 59 years old. If I work at the VA for 11 years, I will only have 19 years of federal service. Will I be entitled to any federal government pension? Must I work a full 20 years for the Fed? Will that effect the Social Security funds that I have contributed to for the past 25 years?
