Q. I did early retirement in 2005 by way of a buyout. I receive an annuity. What would the issue be if I return to federal service now?

A. Because you didn’t meet the normal age and service requirements to retire, when you went back to work, your annuity would stop, and you wouldn’t be able to retire again until you did.
