Prior service adds to service comp time

Bookmark and Share

Q. I am currently a DoD employee with prior military service as well as time with USPS. My service computation date was adjusted to reflect my prior military time. Am I allowed credit for the time I was with USPS. If so, how is that time computed/reflected? 

A. While the Postal Service differs in some respects from other agencies of government, employment with the Postal Service counts as creditable service in determining your service computation date and will be used in the computation of your annuity.
