Re-employment after involuntary retirement


Q. I was involuntarily retired in October 2010 due to BRAC. I had reached age and time requirements to take a full annuity. I was, however on the Priority Placement List and have received a tentative job offer. My question is what happens to my annuity when I re-enter federal service?

A. If you are re-employed, your annuity will stop and you’ll be treated as regular employee, with the right to retire again on a date of your chosing.
