Q. I am in civil service with 40 years and 9 months, including two years in the military for which I’ve made a deposit. I also have one year and four months of unused sick leave. Do I qualify for the maximum 80 percent annuity? I now have allotments taken out of my pay stubs. When I retire, will they remain the same? I hope so because I don’t want them to change. If I get a full-time job in the private sector, will that affect my annuity? I’m eligible for Social Security. I’ve heard that if you work for only 180 days…
