Q. I worked on a permanent GS appointment from July 2013 to May 2014. I separated and returned to the government January 2015. Is there any way I can get back my previous time for leave-accumulation purposes?
Q. I worked for the Department of Justice from August 1988 until December 1999. I recently applied for a new job within the federal government. If I am hired, will I be credited for the previous years worked?
Q. I recently retired from CBP as a FERS retiree at 67 years of age. I want to take a six month, 1,039 hours job as a Ranger/guide at the local National Park. It seems I will lose my National Park Service salary because of my CBP annuity and basically be working for free. Is this correct?
Q. I retired under FERS in 2009 after 15 years of service (MRA). I received a buy out under VSIP. I am 66 years old and have been collecting Social Security since 62. Can I apply for a federal position with the Department of Veterans Affairs or the Defense Department?
Q. I retired from the Federal Aviation Administration in January 2013 (after 33½ years) and began receiving my CSRS annuity. I am considering returning to the FAA in an executive level position. How will my annuity payments be impacted, if at all? Will I pay into Social Security or FERS?
Q. I retired as a GS-13 in August 2013, with 38 years of service under CSRS. I was offered a $26,000 buyout from my agency (I was 57 years old when I retired). If I were to return to federal service, would I return under CSRS? Is there a time requirement when I can return (for instance, do I have to wait 5 years after I retired)? Also, would I have to re-pay the $26,000 buyout payment, and/or any of my retirement contributions that I have received, if I were to return before the 5-year time span?
Q. I accepted an early retirement and incentive in 2013 from civil service (CSRS). I want to go back to work for DOD but was told I needed to repay the incentive before my first day of employment. Is this true?
