Post office buyback


Q. I spent 10 years on active duty, and I am in the Navy Reserve. Between the active-duty and Reserve time, I worked for the post office. I know the post office allows you to buy back your military time. Is the reverse also true — can you transfer your Postal Service time to count toward military retirement?

A. No.
