Federal and military employment and retirement


Q. Hello, I have seen many questions about getting credit for military service when retiring under FERS, but I wonder if it works the other way, too. If a person was in the military, separated from service and worked for the federal government under FERS, and then went back into the military, is his FERS time creditable to his military retirement?

A. No.
