Q. I’m a FERS employee. Will active-duty time in the military be included when computing my annuity and used in determining the amount of my special retirement supplement?
A. Your active-duty service will only be included in the computation of your annuity if you make a deposit to the civilian retirement system for that period of time. Whether or not you make a deposit, it won’t be included when computing the special retirement supplement. Only actual FERS service can be used in that computation.
