Q. I am a 48-year-old postal employee with a starting date of January 1987. I was discharged from the Marine Corps with a 30 percent retirement disability. I did the 3 percent buyback of my four years of military time back in 1990.
Will my four military years be eligible to be included in my retirement, as I am already receiving a disability/retirement compensation? If they are not included toward my retirement, how do I begin the process for a refund on my military deposit?
A. Yes, the four years of active-duty service for which you made a deposit will be used to determine your total years of service and in your annuity computation.
