FERS buyback


Q. I had 3½ years in under FERS when I transferred to an agency that does not participate in it. I took a total withdrawal of my TSP funds (which included four years of military service that I bought back). If I return to an agency that participates in FERS, can I buy back the funds/time I withdrew?

A. Yes.
