Q. I retired from the Air Force after 20 years in 2005 at the age of 45. I took a GS job in May 2005 and am a GS-12. I thought, based on reading about my benefits, that I am eligible for a GS retirement if I work at least 10 years and am at least 56 when I retire again.
A. You would be eligible to retire under the MRA+10 provision (minimum retirement age with at least 10 but fewer than 30 years of service).
