Legislative and executive branch service


Q: I have 10 years of legislative branch service and 10 years of executive branch service, all under FERS. If I retire under the executive branch, do I still receive a 1.7 percent per year worked annuity for my legislative branch service? Or are all the years of legislative service treated the same as executive branch service and receive only a 1 percent per year worked annuity?

A: Your legislative branch service will be computed using the enhanced formula; the remaining years will be computed using the standard formula.
