Q. I am currently a federal employee and also a traditional Guardsman (one weekend a month and two weeks a year). I served 13 years on active duty Army. I am at around 16 years total military service right now as well. If I were to buy back my 13 years of active time, would those years still count toward my military retirement? How would it affect my military retirement? Just pay?

Q. I am a 48-year-old FERS employee and considering resignation with almost 28 years of federal service. If I resign now (age 48), at age 60 do I submit a request to the Office of Personnel Management to collect pension high-3 (28 years of service)? If this is so, would this be considered a postponed or deferred retirement?

Q. Hello, I worked for the National Labor Relations Board (under FERS) for four years and left to work with California MTA and California Department of Justice (CalPers). Do either of those California state agencies have reciprocity with the federal government? If no, would I be able to purchase the one year left to vest in FERS?
