Q. How do retirement points (1801 total points creditable), with five years, four months and two days total qualifying for retirement on my ARPC Form 249-E, figure into my military service credit? I have already completed military service credit payment for my Army active service of four years, 10 months and 16 days.
Do I have to buyback any more time before I retire with 20 years of civilian service in 2017? I am 60 years old and work as a GS-11 with the National Archives and Records Administration.
A. Only your actual active-duty service counts. Retirement points are irrelevant.
