Waive military retirement?


Q. I have 15 years of active-duty time and seven years in the National Guard. I will receive a reserve pension as an officer at age 60. I currently work for the federal government. If I buy back the 15 years of active duty and use it for my federal civilian retirement, would I have to waive my military reserve retirement?

A. No, you wouldn’t.
