Service time


Q. I was an active-duty firefighter in the Air Force. Does that time count towards the special computation for retirement of LE/FF/ATC? I am currently not a FF in the federal system but am a federal employee.

A: No, it does not. It would only count if you were a firefighter who was called to active duty and then returned to your firefighter position.
