Creditable service and early retirements

Bookmark and Share

Q. When is creditable service NOT creditable? As an Air National Guard Federal Technician, my local human resources office insists that three-plus years of Title 10 Active Duty military service (which I’ve paid my deposit for) cannot be used to satisfy the 20-year minimum service criteria for early/involuntary (loss of military membership) retirements in IAW 5 USC 8414 (c)(2). Is this correct?

A. Yes. Active duty for which you’ve made a deposit cannot be used to meet the 20 years of actual covered service requirement.
