Confusion on retirement dates


Q. I have received a printout showing retirement computation date as follows:

Start Date 1/14/78 End date 10/18/91  Years 13 Months 9 Days 5

Annuity Computation Date

Start 1/14/78      End 9/30/82      Years 4    Months 8  Days 17

10/1/82            10/18/91                0                0              0

Total                                                        4                8           17

Could you explain what they both indicate?

A. No, I can’t. You’ll need to ask the folks who provided you with the printout.
