Q: I am retired military and receiving retired military pay. I am a service academy graduate; that four years is not included in my military retirement. I just started working as a civil service employee. Can I receive creditable time for my four years at the academy for civil service retirement since it is not part of my military retirement pay?
A: You can if you make a deposit to the civilian retirement system for that time. Talk to someone in your personnel office to find out how to do that.
