Q. I have been in the federal government for 15 years and now my position (excepted service) is being abolished through a reduction in force. 1. If I take the severance pay, does that turn my involuntary separation into a voluntary one? 2. If I take the severance pay, do I lose my 15 years of service if I get re-employed with a federal job?

Q. I worked as a civilian employee for Alameda Naval Air Base, Calif., under CSRS for 20 years, eight months and four days. At the time the base was closed in 1995, I was not eligible for retirement due to my age. I will be 60 in a couple of weeks. Will I be eligible for my retirement from the federal government? How is that amount calculated and what do I need to do to start the process?

Q. My husband retired from the federal government 10 years ago. He has had health insurance through my company for the past 23 years.

He is 64, I am 55 and we have two children living at home, 24 and 21.

Q. I am 62, with 20 years and 10 months of service. My retirement application with a date of Dec. 31, 2013, was accepted June 13, and my retirement representative has begun work on this. Can I still be affected by a reduction in force even though the government has my retirement application? I am also having a little difficulty understanding the Voluntary Separation Incentive Pay.
