2 retirements


Q. The situation is this:

* 14 years active duty (and have paid deposit)

* Six more years of civil service, then left without receiving a rebate on retirement contributions

* FERS calculator says I could draw retirement at age 60 with a total of 20 years (14 + 6) of creditable service

* I continue to serve in the Reserve and will draw a Reserve retirement at age 60, as well

Will I be eligible to draw both retirements, with no relationship between them or reduction to FERS retirement after military retirement pay begins?

A. Correct.
