Retirement date calculation


Q. My service computation date is Oct. 14, 1994, and I did military buyback (eight years). I entered federal civil service in August 2002. What is my retirement date? At age 57, I will have 20 years of civil service. This is without the military buyback. What would my total time be for retirement?

A. Because you made a deposit for your active-duty service, your SCD is correct for both leave accumulation and retirement purposes.
