Q. I am a FERS employee and a disabled vet. I was given a medical retirement for injuries I received during my tour of duty in the Navy in 1972-75. I waived my military retirement in lieu of a Veterans Affairs Department pension about 15 years ago. I have made the service credit deposits required so that my military time will be credited to my FERS retirement. I recently attended a retirement seminar and was told that I will have to sign a waiver of military retired pay when I file for my FERS retirement. Does this mean I will lose my VA pension?
A. No, you won’t because you aren’t receiving military retired pay.
