Do you know if and how your temporary time counts towards your FERS retirement?
Depends on when the temporary appointment was set.
Was it before or after January 1, 1989?
If so, you will have the opportunity to pay a little bit of money (make a deposit) and get credit for that time served. If you don't pay the deposit, the time doesn't count.
If you had a temp appointment on or after January 1, 1989, except for few instances, you do not have an opportunity to make a deposit and earn credit for the previous time served.
Learn how this affects your eligibility during our upcoming retirement seminar. Registration is filling up fast and space is limited - deadline to register is Friday, September 09, 2022.
